Hello SGL

Just came home from a nice evening with my astronomy club. According to tradtion we always kick of the season with a grilling party. The clouds lingered all evening but we got 1 hour of more or less clear skies just after dark. I had left my scope at home but brought my DSLR for some widefields. It didn't matter as we had a good time eating and talking, and during the clear streak Lars took had a visual session for old and new members in the 18" newtonian (the large white dome), Mats and Patrik tried to catch an asteroid occultation with the 16" RC astrograph. We also had two refractors and one MN190 collecting subs and Magnus 6" newton used for sketching.

Two really new things for me this evening: First we saw Mother of Pearl Clouds or Nacreous Clouds after sunset. Never really seen those, let alone record them. Also Magnus showed me the Veil nebula with his 6" newton. At first I was really not sure what I saw, but then he fitted his filters it really popped out at me. Need to get me a few of those.

Good way to kick of a new season, in spite of clouds.







Thanks for watching!
