Doubting TACOs

by Peter Santangeli

Just to add to Bob's post, it really was one of the dampest night's I've ever put up with. At one point I found myself thinking it was actually raining! I was sitting at the end of my van using my laptop, and felt the pitter patter of rain. As it turns out, it was water condensing on my open tailgate, and falling in drops on my laptop keyboard. WET!

I did manage one good image of M42 (and an uninspired M36 not worth showing):

Needs a bit more processing. I'll be sending some futher notes on this to TAC-Imaging, as I was trying some cool new software.
