    Took my 10 x 50 binocs to Keller Sunday night 9/25. Nice clear and dark sky especially towards the zenith. Milky Way was easily seen from N to SE. Binocular highlights included M22 M13 M3 M5 M8 Double Cluster M31 and M11. The last (Wild Duck cluster in Scutum) had the appearance of globular with a bright star in front of it in binocs. Seen with Starblast at 65x clearly showed it to be compact open star cluster.
    An 8 second image of M11 taken with 60 mm guide scope and 6.3 mpixel color camera is shown below.
