Pretty good night out in the desert. Warm. Sky not as transparent as one might hope and "seeing" not exactly "stellar". :-) Minor front had passed through during the day. Night was clear luckily. Stars twinkled somewhat although not as bad as the previous night.
I hesitated posting this one. It is pretty marginal.
