The skies just haven’t cooperated in pursuit of some of my targets. On the few nights/ early mornings I managed to get out, I made some captures, and embraced the clouds in some cases!

Gave it a shot early this morning 7/11/22 to try to see the comet, but no luck with the full-ish Moon. But seeing the Moon and Antares together were a nice consolation prize.
