Now you see me..... now you don't (Orion)


Recommended Posts

I think we all know how bad the weather has recently been in UK and this is the kind of weather we are fighting against for any visual. I though the sky looked great last night and while I was setting my Dob, I put my mobile (Pixel 4a) against a rock on astrophotography mode (4 min) and that's what the beautiful night sky turned for the rest of the night.

Great video Kon. Unfortunately those clouds moved in super quick hey!?

Yes the weather has been absolutely pants recently. It's nearly a 5-6 weeks since my last proper night out, so I really enjoy reading your reports.

@KimbomanI had the most memorable Orion viewing at the beginning of season but since then it has been a struggle. The few times it has been clear, it has not lasted more than 15-30mins Max. It is sad looking at the observing section and there are hardly any reports from the past few weeks.

Hi again earlier this evening it looked promising, I set up my Celestron se150 as I wanted to check its collimation, Polaris was visible as I use this as my target .

I had just locked on to Polaris as the clouds started to roll in obliterating Polaris, but just beneath Polaris was a clear patch and a marvellous meteor zoomed past so it was worth the effort
