Very good sky conditions at the park that night, where 4 members where in attendance. There was a lot of dew which eventually ended our sessions a little early. But not before much observing (and imaging). There were many noted meteors including one particularly bright fireball. Seemed more than normal considering there are no meteor showers around that date. Had fun playing with short/non-guided exposures which meant time to visit more targets! Was also testing Starsense (alignment automation tool) which worked quite well - the scope placed targets dead center in fov for every slew.
