Right up Mount Teide

Hawksmoor

1,429 views

I decided to try the month's free access to the Bradford Robotic Telescope on Mount Teide, Teneriffe. So thanks 'Sky at Night' Magazine! The free trial is limited to a number of given objects and the exposures and filters are all preset, so you cannot go wrong, but all in all I was quite pleased. I am considering investing the less than prohibitive £3 a month inorder to try out the real thing. Seems to me a very inexpensive way of accessing objects near or below my southern horizon with better kit than I can afford under clearer skies. I also can do it without getting cold or staying up half the night. This month in Lowestoft it has been mega-wet and if autumn turns out anything like the summer, I cannot see me gathering many photons in my backyard!

I'm currently in lanzarote and it's amazing how high in the sky saggitarius and Scorpio are.I could pick m6 and m7 up easily with bins and see the star clouds with naked eye.

Sounds Brilliant!  Never been to Lanzarote but some ten years ago I enjoyed the stars in Sagitarius from Teneriffe and Fuertaventura.  Am looking forward to a week at Les Granges with Olly Penrice in October. Will be good to look at treats which are near or below my southern horizon.  Hope you enjoy your holiday and thanks for your comment.
