Can anyone remember the last clear sky? I purchased an Esprit 100 weeks ago and not had a clear sky since.

I must admit I had totally lost track of the Moon phase as I had not seen it for over two weeks.

 It was Full last night, which honestly came as a bit of a surprise.

Three weeks and counting, had a few very quick sessions before that,

I can't wait for a cloudless clear sky, fingers crossed, it won't be long.

Clear Sky's, soon.

Hi Everyone

Perfectly clear my end last night

Tried to image Moon and Jupiter, and Moon with Saturn last night with my Android phone

Not very happy with results

Got a green blob both pics

Not sure to do with moon reflecting camera lens

Both Jupiter and Saturn were about equal distance either side almost full moon

Now gives reason to come down under

Let you be the judge

11 observing days since Jan 1 here in Wisconsin, only one of those a Milky Way sky and the rest all high thin cloud where extended objects were only visible by astronomy camera and longer exposures and even then the stacked images were lacking. Has to be the worst in many years here and last fall was also a bit of a washout but the first part of last year was quite good, clears sky's soon I hope...

Had beautiful clear skies last night

Jupiter was visible almost over head

Moon now rising later every night

Saturn was trailing the moon

Think we have conjunction Saturn and Moon tonight

The last time you were able to complain about Starlink, I think he means.

I haven't kept track, it won't be dark enough for another two months.

So it's your fault we have not had clear skies 😀  send the Esprit 100 back then it might clear up.

It's really cleared up here so I've just put my scope out ready, hopefully that doesn't influence any clouds...
