Pretty much done now.

This night was harder in the sense that the easy objects were done on the first two nights so we're no longer going after the low hanging fruit. That's not to say there were no more interesting objects, but the integration times were longer and more targets don't seem to have anything interesting.

Of course I won't know for sure until I get home and get stuck into the data reduction.

The sky outside remains spectacular, with the southern cross, galactic plane and, earlier in the night, orion standing on his head. I'll go outside now and have a last look at that as the sun rises. Then it's to bed and the start of the long trip home.
Mood:: 'sleepy' sleepy
