Pegasus and Gemini , dew battle !

Recommended Posts

Very promising night , no moon and calm clear skies. Soon after starting , the dew was horrendous. Frost formed on the shed roof and I used a wrapped hot water bottle inside the eyepiece case.

It's just a delight to observe the named stars of Gemini. Wasat being a real gem. Wrap up , turn up the dew heaters   Under those clear skies !

Nice sketches and observing Nick.
It was a tad damp last night and then rather frosty too as you say.

Glad you wrapped the eye pieces up with a cosy hot water bottle, hope you did the same for yourself.

Some tight doubles there nicely split, sketches as usual are brilliant when I do get out there its nice to have them there as a reference to what I am seeing.

Terrible weather here no let up of the clouds think it was clear Tuesday morning from about 3.30am well that was what the forecast said but it has been that wrong I did not bother getting out of bed.

Thanks for the report Nick really good read.
