  1. well, today looks very clear from the cloud perspective, but the wind is stronger than yesterday, so it seems likely it'll be pretty difficult conditions up the mountain...


  2. Abergavenny (~6 miles from blaenavon) is both cloudy and pretty windy right now (12:45pm) with winds forecast to get worse during the day :( 

    I'm thinking it unlikely to be worth going up the mountain today.


  3. Start early: Andromeda is sinking lower as the evening wears on, plus the 92% Moon is out at 9ish this evening. Also be aware that in the eyepiece, m31 can be underwhelming: only a small core can be seen, looking nothing like the glorious photos you will have seen. Binoculars (or finders) can actually give better views of m31 because more of the overall size can be seen.

    However, DO seek it out, it is a humbling experience to see our nearest galactic showpiece so clearly. Also try for naked eye! :)
