August, 2013:

Western Veil Nebula

Went camping with some friends out in Cuyamaca State Park. Took my gear because I wanted to test out a new DC power arrangement I had put together using Anderson Powerpoles. Needless to say it worked perfectly. Got just under 2 hours with the sensor around 10C… new cold finger mod is working perfectly.
