I was taking some pictures of the Ring Nebula, then moved on to see what I could do with the Andromeda Galaxy. Unfortunately, the light pollution in Ephrata is simply too much. It didn’t help that I was looking through my 10mm eyepiece, but you can see the dark dust lanes at least.

Next time I’ll put a light pollution filter on and see what happens – maybe use the Newtonian or SCT for more light gathering.
