Manchester Light Pollution

Tonight, I went observing with Tony and Megan. We used the 10" Meade on the roof of the physics department in the city centre. To be honest, the light pollution in Manchester is really bad, so seeing all but the brightest objects by eye can be a challenge. Considering that the conditions were far from perfect, we did manage to image a few objects although I'm still not convinced about NGC 884. To illustrate the point about light pollution, I thought I would include a picture that I took with my digital camera.
