    Default wow clear clear night



    so up until about 23:30 the sky was a deep deep blue and i could barley see anything

    but i still ventured out with the 60mm and the GT, which again is giving me issues

    1st on the night was MARS and in both it looked awesome bit much to hope for at 4mm in the GT, it was very hazy, couldn't get sharp focus on it or saturn, don't know why , atmosphere conditions, everything was blurry , that or my vision still aint right from the moth attack.

    on with the camera and down comes the scope , blast it now I've got to realign the sucker

    plus note - i got another Messier object - M12 on photo - badly admitted but its M12 non the less.

    tonights attempts, i really should invest in a mask

    very badly focused M12

    It was clear out for us here on the coast but not very good seeing conditions. It was a bit bubbly up there for sure. At least anything under say 50 degrees was. Great report and great imaging. Keep at it!

    Hey Rob. Thanks for the report and the images - not a bad Saturn indeed!

    Yeah it's nice and clear here. I went out for a short session (can't do a long one tonight...) and try out my 6mm EP and Baader Q Turret. Dew hit hard and fast though around midnight and hadn't bothered to connect up the dew system. It was strange it seemed to take an eternity to get properly dark... Closer to midnight really
