  • 100% clear, 1/5 transparency, 1/5 seeing

  • ED80 mounted on Orion Atlas EQ-G (PC)

  • backyard, Ottawa, Canada

  • terminator ~ 72 W

Started out clear as I set up, but gradually a thin layer of haze appeared.  I took some images anyway despite the poor conditions.  They didn't turn out too bad considering.  Cold again, -18deg C.  Of course, by the time I was packed back up, the clouds were gone!
