I was about to do some deepsky astrophotography with the 10" when I noticed that the aurora decided otherwise. I was not expecting this display as nothing was really forecasted. This seems to be the trend nowadays. I am also in the process of putting together a timelapse of this display! WHenever theres a big CME headed to earth, it clouds over. Then when nothing is supposed to happen, the Bz heads south. Im really not complaining. I moved to the northwoods of Wisconsin to get closer to the lights when they do decide to play. Aurora to me trumps astrophotography any day of the week
