Set up in Sun lounge  and imaged  through open doorway.. Luckily I guessed  correctly  where the pole was.  |Set up from 17.20 so was able to check drift  before starting to image.  Imaging through the  open doorway  gave protection from the blustery wind and kept the dew at  bay.  Identified Neptune using Uranometria 2000 and  blue colour on image.
