M51 - A New Galaxy for Me

After discovering that I was having trouble connecting to my dome and scope from the control PC, I finally tracked down the issue. The USB card had gone bad, so I wasn't able to connect. A short trip through Best Buy and a new board solved the problem. Happy that I had resolved an issue that had been troubling me for some time, I was happy to see the Clear Sky Clock showing that tonight would be a good viewing night. I gave it a shot and was pleased with the results. While it won't land me a job at JPL, I think you can clearly see that this is a galaxy.
