Quick look at the Bat nebula given there is a break in the clouds. I had trouble with a guide star due to as hot pixel so I had to move the scope slightly to move the guide star. I need to take a some new darks for the off axis guider.

I tried 2 regions within the Bat nebula given its size, but neither showed any signs of nebula on a single 10min exposure.

I then tried Lynds Dark Nebula, LDN 1082 The Seahorse. |However again due to the expanse of this object a small portion was only available in the 12″ so again this will be more suited to the Esprit.

I then went for Palomar 10, a Globular cluster in Sagtta.
