Well done David.  I don't think I've bothered with the challenge since last April.

I just  did another two last night to test my new planetary camera, I like to try and do it when the moon is annoying as it means I don't swear at it too much for ruining the darkness  ;D

That's a good idea.  I might try that too, especially if I'm in the back garden.  How's it going with the camera?

Really impressed with it to be honest. It is obviously better than the old Xbox Webcam I was using although it did a good enough job. I just posted a few images to Astrobin.
