Cool report James. Enjoyed it thanks for posting.

That's one issue with desert climates, the temp drops like a brick at night. Take a look at Mildura, 26C at midnight last night, by dawn down to 17C! Active cooling is definately the answer in such conditions and even then a decent thickness mirror would struggle to keep up. Excellent period of clear skies in the northern half of Vic lately though, hopefully it'll continue.

Rod - interesting you see IC 418 as orange, I've tried in vain to see the reddish colour reported numerous times. Never was sure if it's aperture or skies that are more important.
