Last weekend we had a small star-party in Any Rieux Martin in the northern part of France. The weather was just wonderful and on Friday and Saturday night we could observe through the night. I had a lot of first time viewings of some fantastic objects like the Flame Nebula and the complete Rosette Nebula. I also had the chance to observe a few Messier objects near the southern horizon (M 79, M 41 and M93). A detailed report will be logged later on this month, but here are a few images that were taken on the first evening. Click on the images to enlarge.
