Two nights ago, I collected 1048 frames of the clear night sky from my apartment balcony. I have a shutter lock, and I have to step off the balcony and stand in the doorway so my shifting weight doesn't shake the entire wood balcony.
I finally bagged M64 undeniably after almost a year. It's a little anticlimactic, but gratifying. Messier total is up to 56 out of 110!
