I've been working on top of the "Heads of the Valleys" today (didn't see Elvis) and the sky has been quite clear, to the point where I seriously considered

blowing the dust of the Telescope.

Just been out the back with my Bins, The Moon, Jupiter and nothing else.

Think I'll go look at one legged seagull's

Good sky tonight in Padiham , was using basic bino's and got a wonderful view of the moon, nice and clear, just wish I had a scope for more depth and planets, but for what I have I won't complain.

i just hope the the sky is clear on Saturday night, I m hoping to go to the observatory in todmorden .

Clear here at present, been out looking at Jupiter and M42, just set the scope up at the front door so a bit limited.

May try M42 after midnight when the lights get switched off.

Slightly cold however, still getting over the thermal shock.

Two, no way, you lucky thing, I have had nilch. Being that sky conditions were awful throughout the second half of last year, I thought I would be in for a corking winter, but no such luck I'm afraid.

It's just cleared up here for the first time in ages although I won't be going out to set the gear up now. Nice to see Jupiter Orion & Sirius before I go to bed.

I don't get it - why are you fuming? Two is better than none at all. Lucky fellow.

Rain and clouds go away, don't come back come what May. Hmm, needs work.

Managed to get in 30mins of clear skies last night for the first time since Mid October, it has been a long break. However as I said it only lasted 30mins and then the clouds rolled in but I did some visual observing.

It cleared too late for me last night - however, Sunday night looks promising AND with some half decent transparency although poor seeing by the looks of it! Fingers & toes crossed!

Not fuming, just a bit annoying that's all, my time will come

Typical, it's been horrible since I got my scope and it was raining all day today ... 02:05 and I'm about to go to sleep, but for some reason get the urge to look outside and the sky is clear ... stars everywhere!

There's a lesson in there somewhere ... either this hobby is not for me .... or I should buy a grab and go scope :D ...... hmmmm
