Did you put that out there just for me cause I asked? How's that tent, crowded? I put up 3 9x12 tarps on 4x4 posts to block the street lights. Works good. Lets me give you a few items to look for if you haven't see these yet. They are pretty easy. Of course if you can still see Andromeda early, look for M31, m32 and M110. While your there, take a look at the double star Gamma Andromeda. It's a beautiful orange and blue star. In CV there's lots of good stuff. M51 and it's companion, M94 just about the brightes galaxy in the sky and M63 also very nice. Try in Leo M64/65 another very nice pair. Half way between Arcturus in Bootes and Alpha CV look for the globular cluster M3, very impressive. In CB look for the globular M53, not as impressive as M3 but still nice and the Galaxy M64 is close by also. In general look for all the Messier (M) objects on the charts. They are all in reach of a 4 1/2" reflector. There are plenty of NGC's as well. Good Luck.
That's it;
