A note and photo from Siddhesh and his 10" F4 with Nova optics:
Hi Dennis, At long last, the sky cleared up and I took the dob out to the club's dark site. The seeing was poor, so I didn't split any tight doubles, but I was nothing short of mesmerized by M42 and the double cluster... Pretty amazing to observe nebulosity in the Orion Nebula with the same clarity as the cirrus clouds I see from airplane windows! . . .
