Right, so last night started badly. Got to MR around 8:30 with the express desire to start to learn guiding. I had the new guide scope, ZWO120mm-S and had previously aligned them. all went well settin

Well I did get out, and got a couple of runs on Jupiter....I have posted in the planetary section, but thought I would put it here as well (in case anyone is about).

just putting this back to the top of the threads....lets try and get out more now the nights are starting to get darker!

Forecasts are all over the shop at the present. I setup yesterday evening with a promise of a few clear hours and was sent scampering back inside, dragging everything with me in a hurry with a shower and clouds blowing over. Friday evening looks alright at the moment :).....

Righto all....I am thinking about heading out tomorrow to catch the conjunction over at Margaret Roding. Seems to be ok at the moment on 7 timer, but will update as we get nearer to confirm. Anyone else want to head out for a road trip?

No, my lazzyness and cold cider in the garden took over. Need to start motivating myself bit better.

Sorry, bit late on this - I went to Kelling for a few days, Thu-Sun. Was clear for most of it, although there was a downpour very early Saturday morning. Few clouds blowing over, but all in all a really good time. Lucky is what I would call it, given the conditions before and after.
