Here's a low-resolution spectrum I took last night in difficult conditions
of low altitude, thin cloud & strong wind from White Cliffs, NSW,
Australia. 03.621 Dec 2013 UT, Star Analyser grating on Canon 650D at
Also widefield image here, 03.590 Dec 2013 UT, again in awful conditions:
Hoping for better conditions tonight.
