I've had barely any time to observe or image for a few months now, and when I've had time the weather has been awful. Tonight I broke my duck :)

I spent an hour splitting doubles with the frac, watched ISS pass a few times and did some lunar observing, focussing on the fine details on the Western edges of Oceanus Procellarum, the seeing was good and 250x yielded some nice sharp detail I'm pleased to say.

Then it was time for some images, including some test shots at 600mm for the upcoming eclipse. All in all a good evening.

Thought I might get a bit of imaging done tonight, the forecast said clouds then they cleared but too late to start.

I'm staying up if the skies are clear, looking hopeful ATM, must check camera battery is fully charged.

I've got work tomorrow, so have to get some sleep somewhere, early night for me. I'm rather upset that my spare battery died a death last night so I think I'll need the hairdryer to keep it warm! :)

Some good news you may have missed in my other post, tried the latest replacement Quark this morning for the first time and although the seeing was terrible it looks good, just need the Sun to get higher for a real test as didn't have time to play with the tuning.
