Hi folks, just a quick time tonight, had clear skies between 9 and now, got out with both the C8, first light to the 8mm HR planetary on Jupiter, localised atmo disturbance from rooftops but got a few fleeting moments of clarity, beautiful sight indeed.
Then change location to front and gazed at the moon with my 100X 25 bins, always surprising how if you look for 10 minutes or so suddenly you start to really pick stuff out, great views again.
Had a quick tour of all the orange stars I could pick out then grab Saturn in the bins as it appeared from behind a roof---- absolutely brilliant !
Apparently the jet stream is way,way south for us in blighty, well it was borne out tonight by the seeing, pretty damn good, IMHO.
Well that's it folks hope for clear skies for ya all.

Well, I was going to say too bad you only had about an hour and a half before the bright Moon rose on your first clear night in ages, but at least you enjoyed Luna with the binos. Do you have those monsters mounted?
