Just now the first thing I do when I wake up is pull the curtain back while I'm laying in bed to see how the skies are looking. Recently I've almost been blinded on a daily basis as my eyes are dazzled by the white sheet of cloud covering the entire sky. My window faces the West and it seems like there will never be a day where I can see the end of the cloud blowing over to my direction!

Looking pretty good here in the West Midlands - Bewdley. Clearing up quite nicely.

Just hope it doesnt turn out like last night, 1 hour setup, crystal clear, take 5 images, haze/fog/cloud roll in for the night.

1st REALLY dark night ive had with my setup, so hopefully tonight will be a better night! Ive been watching Weather Europe, Satellite Weather Europe, Weather Forecast, Rainfall, Clouds, Sun in Europe - Source: SAT24.com all day and watching the cloud break right over head....so hopefully it'll stay that way as all the forecasts are predicting....

Dont hold out though, i may be back on this thread @ 9pm whining and whinging about the clouds.

Who invented clouds anyway?! LOL

Im only just up the road, so dont get your hopes up. It took literally 5 minutes to go from clear sky to 100% cloud last night. The light winds and high pressure really isnt helping :)

It was Gin clear here last night.....put my scope out, setup, turned laptop on, found my target, started to focus, looked behind me, and saw the thickest wall of cloud/fog roll over, within 2/3 mins it was white/orange over. Not impressed! lol

Ahhh lovely clear sky, put scope out to cool, went out an hour later, no cloud but the sky had become surprisingly light. And conditions had become next to useless.

Was a real pea souper in Southwick last night :)

Shame after the day was so nice and clear.

Sitting in Cafe Cube down the square now looking out of the window to a light grey sky :)

Hopefully it'll clear by tonight so I can get into the garden with the girlfriends DS2080.

I've simply not got the funds for a scope at the moment as works been so slow :icon_salut:
