Ah, SUMMER again! The Ring Nebula

Summer has returned with clear skies and I am back in the observatory again! Yea!
But I am out of practice with my equipment and so a lot of time was spent recalibrating and refreshing my poor memory, lol. But I did catch Saturn (not all that exciting now since it is dropping low in the southwest) and the Ring Nebula (high overhead). Didn't do any regular visual viewing (eyeball to the eyepiece) but did do some astrovideo (see photo of the Ring Nebula below) with my old Celestron C8 scope. Lot's of work still to do to bring my technique back up. Stay tuned!
