Disappointed...

doesnt even begin to cover tonights debacle...

Planned this evenings observing down to a tee, forecast a nice clear evening, then it just went wrong from there...

My initial obs point near a coastguard lookout has been ruined with the addition of a huge security light fitted to the front of the building which the coastguard now leaves on permanantly :)

Drove to my new dark sky site, unpacked and set up... no sooner had i put the ep in a stiff breeze blew up from no-where buffeting the scope so badly i couldnt even view the moon!

Packed up swearing and came home... very very disappointed :)

Thought id salvage the evening with a nice glass of red wine and what do you know the blinkin stuff has turned to vinegar! Someone somewhere is telling me to go to bed!

It's three bad things per day, isn't it?

Oh great...:):)

Those security lights breed like rabbits. I can imagine your frustration, Llamanaut, as that was one of your favourite sites, wasn't it?

It's a good reminder for people to have back-up sites when out and about...
