  1. Have a great trip, you will really enjoy it. We did a similar trip in 2009. Here's a couple of images taken , 1) Flagstaff (my son at the business end of the telescope) 2) Meteor crater (you will need a wide angle lens)

    Bottle opener found on Moon

    You're right it's not easy to spot unless you know where to look.
  6. Saw this rather odd shadow feature that reminded me of a giant bottle opener (centre frame on 2nd image), probably caused by a central peak with surrounding high peaks. Any thoughts ?

    Tonights Moon 8-1st

    The crescent and earth shine was a fabulous sight this evening, snapped it with a SW 120 and Canon.
  8. My late (and only) attempt at P46, it's now fading and not that exciting but last night was my first opportunity to imaging it. Canon 60D with f2.8 135mm, 3 x 3min subs.

    Rubbish for at least the next week according to Not Clear Outside, do I shout bingo when every square is red?

    Did anyone see that? Explosion near Saturn

    Hi Saturn is not currently visible at that time from my location, from where did you make your observation ?

    Andromeda Galaxy

    I think your best bet is to use a pair of binoculars (if you have some), the Andromeda galaxy is a large object and with your setup you would only be able to see a small section and it would be very dim. A short focal length is the way to go.
  13. The first of many reports to come I'm sure https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46181662
