Occasional imaging opportunities are starting to reappear in Central Florida after a lengthy cloudy summer.  Last night I traveled to my nearest local dark sky site and imaged a number of winter deep sky objects including Pleiades.  I was able to acquire 20 three minute frames in between some pesky clouds with the Stowaway (& Telecompressor) and the Mach2GTO.  To my delight, I 'discovered' Minor Planet 796 passing near Pleinoe after processing the approximately 60 minutes of data.
