Thursday evening was extremely clear, 10 our of 10, and I always take advantage of a clear night.  Having chosen the object to image I proceeded to take a one hour image of M63 (NGC5055) magnitude 8.5 .  And as usual another galaxie PGC45992 (Principal Galaxies Catalogue) an 14.8 magnitude galaxy located in the image lower right. 

Later in the evening I started to image M8 an 30 magnitude nebula and was nearly complete when a tree interfered.  Combining images in the original software provided with the camera is done as the images are taken.  If for some reason you stop taking the images you lose all images.  Should have stayed with MaxIm DL.  This nebula is small but is visible in the images and would make a really nice cluster of pinpoint stars and nebulae.  Next time.

Friday night was full of heat/haze and imaging was not good.  Later in the evening around midnight it did clear up.  I attempted to take Jupiter, using an IR Filter, and a 3" scope shows a very small and less detailed planet.  Need to go bigger.  Next time
