Ambient temperature was around 49 degrees fahrenheit which allowed for some reduced noise in 32 second exposures with the air-cooled Olympus C2000Z digital camera. Image were taken using a 31mm Nagler eyepiece coupled to the digital camera with a televue digital camera adapter. Sky conditions were somewhat hazy and I expect to do better from a darker sky site.
