    Hi Alan. Well, your determination paid off with some interesting clusters and galaxies. Thanks for another great observing report Alan, and keep looking up when you can.

Just a dollop of mayo!
    That's exactly how it appears to me from my backyard! A dollop of mayo.

    I'll never unsee that now.

    Thank you Marshall. I may get exasperated at times dealing with the conditions, but I will still give it go when I can.

    Yeah, I know that's how it looks there! The same way it looked from southern Indiana way back in the early 80s with the then Coulter 17.5 aimed parallel to the ground. Knowing you as I do I am sure a dollop of something else came to mind - because it did to me!. But I will leave it at that.

    Thank you Ian. Well they can certainly slow you down and make you shift gears at times.
