just glad to get out at all really Mike though have come to the conclusion will have to construct some viewing platforms (Patios if the wife is reading) at the far end of my garden which gives me a Southern View - then from each corner of My Garden I've got reasonable access to a larger areas of the sky - its never going to be ideal as I'll be looking directly over the roof of my own home but its the best its going to get where I live and I really enjoyed it last night so with a bit of effort over the spring and summer I could make things a lot better for next winter.

I'm going to try to observe the asteroid tonight from the back yard here, instead of going up to the site. Have a few interested neighbors who would like to take a peek , so I'll be setting up two scopes and have the binocks ready; fingers crossed.

Just seen my first ever asteroid - can't say it was something that will live long in the memory but the fact you can actually see something just 45 metres across for 17,000 odd miles away is just remarkable in itself.

Pete its right beneath the andromeda galaxy now. If you can get away from the light pollution should be easy. Find casseopia the point of the largest v points to the next brightest star mirach then just look right and slightly down you'll see m31 and the comet directly below it. Good luck mate.
