I camped out on Friday night, April 19, 2013  at the old family farm property.   I brought everything I needed to image with my Televue TV-85 APO refractor, including my Atlas EQ-G mount.  What a load!  lol   I had fun even with a bright moon out.   As soon as Omega Centauri was visible, I started imaging it.  Three minutes at ISO 400 was as much as I could go with the moonlight and LP, so I tried to get as many sub-images as possible.  I ended up with 42×3 min for a total of 2 hours and 6 minutes worth of integration.
