Decided to try for a better shot of the Pleiades again tonight, but transparency was awful. There was a slight haze over the whole sky and Orion’s belt was barely visible. I took a few afocal shots with my 9mm eyepiece since it pairs well with my cellphone camera, but the field of view was too small at that power. I didn’t get any pictures worth sharing. Tried a quick peek at Jupiter and there was very little contrast so I called it a night and packed things back up.
