NGC 2818 under the bright, full Pink Moon

Moon? What moon?
The Duo Narrowband filter came into its own tonight. The sky looked almost like daylight the full "pink moon" lighting up everything, seeming madness to try DSO imaging in such conditions. Only got 3 x 10 mins in before cloud stopped play, not even the filter can filter out cloud!

The 30x live view is just so good on the EOS Ra. Its sensitive enough to pick up a few stars even through the filter, a clip in type so the OAG gets full white light.
3 x 10 mins ISO 800, 10 inch f5.6 newtonain with the valuable overcoated Sutching mirror. Hand guided as usual. Seeing was pretty good tonight. This is a crop from the much larger field.

Good on you Scott, you’ve managed to bag a very presentable result. Now if we could develop a ‘cloud’ filter
