Observations

Jan. 22, 2010, am

  • ED80 & LX10 mounted on Orion Atlas EQ-G (PC)

  • backyard, Ottawa, Canada

  • terminator ~ 56 E

Forecast was so-so, but ended up extremely clear and steady.  Evening was initially a test of my new Mallincam Xtreme, but then later changed over to Toshiba.  Camera and laptop both worked well other than some minor wireless issues.
