Looking at a timelapse I shot the same night, it looks like I was threading the needle between sunset and moonrise, so that time should be about right.

If anyone is interested here’s some of my Astrophotography. Looking forward to finding dark skies when I start my retirement rv’ing in a couple of years hopefully!

Nice work! For sure.

Here is my next door neighbor's site. I will take a quick pic of his telescope. Right now it is in the clam shell waiting for the top to roll back.

Warning: This guy is nuts!

I suspect he has a very nice (read expensive) scope under that dome...based on the quality of his images!

I think the telescope is north of 25K.

The clam shell itself is stunning.

The serial number on the scope is '8'.
