    If I may add my two penneth from Melbourne, Australia the temp for the last few days has been above 30 deg C and my night time observing split into evening, sleep, early morning has been in boxers and T-shirt. Sorry Ben. And tonight looks the same although the skies are cloudy so I may get a full nights' sleep.
