    Good progress despite challenging conditions Terry! Poor transparency can certainly dampen things and it is not always easy to tell before you pull your scope out and start observing.

    Hi Terry,

    More misses than hits is sometimes the way it goes, but honestly I think you did very well working down low!

    Enjoying your reports with the 5" scope.

    Thanks Andrey. I think it was more the telephone poles and power lines on the southern horizon that ruined the views for me.

    Anyways, I've since seen 2 of the 3 objects from that night, so all is good.

    Thanks Ian. Unfortunately no more "serious" observing reports until the end of the month, given the clouds and moon glow coming up.
