When do you take your honey off in the Fall?

I'm curious to see when others take their supers off in the Fall. My hives are pounding the goldenrod now, started about 10 days ago. I like to make sure they get all the raw nectar dried well, to prevent fermentation. I don't like to wait until they're done foraging though, as honey removal gets tricky once the Fall flow ends. ( trigger off robbing). In my area , asters bloom last, but I try to avoid messing with aster honey, because it sugars up too quick. An old timer told me years ago that beekeeping was 30% knowledge and 70% timing. I think he was right.
