I saw the moon last night too, in between the contrails which magicaly appear whenever the clouds depart:cussing:.

It'll be another week or two before we get dark here.

Oh good, that means I've another two weeks to get the 10Micron mount working :BangHead:

I hope people are having a good night as even with a near full moon it's still pretty dark.

Having checked focus I've found tilt in the csmera I think. May send it to SX to see if they can get the tilt out.

Ah well, off to bed as I can't do anything more ATM.

Just going to have another go at plate solving using the 10Micron, still haven't made it work yet so good use of a nice warm Moonlit night, would have started earlier but forgot to charge the power pack.

Could be a late one.

Well for some reason I'm struggling to aliign.  Plus I had a motor stall so I had to start from the beginning again.  Finally got to align to M51 and it's ticking away atm taking 60sec exposures - not sure if it'll be any good!

Still practice with my GOTO. It found M13 from Vega, then to M92 and now the blinking planetary. I couldn't find the BP on the camera preview, but I looked through the finder and came in to see if the pattern of stars would be anywhere near it in stellarium - it looks like its found it spot on. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be a particularly good photographic object, but although smaller its brighter than Dumbbell and Ring so it should come out.

Will have a desperate attempt at the Pelican after 12, or might move - I think one corner of the garden will let me do Bodes galaxy over the trees if I am lucky.

The moon IS bright, and the skies are clear, typical, but at least the moon is pretty low in the sky and the juicy stuff at this time of year is pretty high.

All I can say is, thank goodness for narrowband imaging!
