You could try observing or writing your next paper?

Oh yes, I saw that too ! 10pm until sunrise, clear over Leicester ?!

I'll  believe it when I see it though. Meanwhile I'm just popping up in the loft to borrow a tarpaulin and some groundsheet pegs (the flat topped ones you don't trip over) from the camping kit. I plan to lay it out on my 'lawn' before sunset, as it seems to have turned into a rice paddy , and I'm worried the telescope (or observer ) might sink without trace ...

Ye gods!  We have a forecast for clear skies from midnight!  And I have a shed full of bits of shiny glass.  I feel sure the two are somehow connected, but I'll be damned if I can remember what's supposed to happen.

Newbie question : Does SGL scheduled maintenance always have this (forecast) effect on the weather, and if so, could you do regular updates, say once a week please ?

FLO delivery box :'May contain clouds' .  SGL forum update 'May repel clouds' !

Thought I might polish the Taks....

Do you have to hand them all over to the Taks man at the end of the month?

Any bets on the forecast changing to clouds and drizzle by tea time? 🤔

The sky has changed to being all cloud here now after a fairly nice day, looks like movie night, again 😞

It's not going to be down that long is it? Regards Andrew 

I’m not worried as I have a back catalogue of sand casting and collimation videos from the Tak factory to watch.

Nice one John, better than here at the moment, but maybe enough gaps to get the scope out

There is a break in the cloud to my west, but it's not close enough yet.  I could see the Sun setting though.  I'd actually forgotten how beautifully blue the sky can be.

Going to start popping my scope out now to cool down, by the time it's cooled and I've set up should be OK to start, wish me luck my first light with the scope and mount outside, clear skies
