Did anyone complete a Messier Marathon last night?

I went to Plettstone (thanks Michelle!) with a great group of stalwart deep sky observers. There was even a 30" Starmaster in attendance! I was so busy I never once went down to take a peek through it. I observerd 40 new objects under beatifully dark skies. Seeing was good early, but got a tad soft later. I was hitting low mag 15's with the 18".

I hope everyone had a great weekend.
