  1. That's a wonderful record of your night under the stars - the photos really convey the sense of occasion. andrew
  2. Themis and Uranus

    I was looking at some things to see in binoculars and noticed asteroid Themis is very close, half a degree from Uranus. Although to faint for those, at just below mag. 11 would be readily seen in a telescope. Has anyone observed it when looking at Uranus ? Themis is the asteroid a few years back where water was discovered for the first time, so it would be a nice thing to see. It's shown in sky safari. andrew

    Sounds like you all had a great morning, lovely pictures. It was a nice dawn, and it looks like a few of us had a good view. andrew
  9. Dawn Planets Line up

    Nice shot Peter. OK this is my poor phone 'effort' with Venus low down - you can just see Mars ! Looked nice through the telescope. And yes Kevin the moon was like a silver mirror setting in the west. Lovely autumn morning. andrew

    Lovely view this morning, in the crisp early dawn light. andrew
  11. Had a look tonight, not quite dark around 8, but before the moon became too bright. That seems about how I see it John - still brighter than 10th mag. Nice pass of the ISS also ! andrew
