Tempting fate tonight


Recommended Posts

I've decided to tempt fate a little tonight...

The forecast looks promising, there's a weird orange disk setting over Derby and there's a hint of a strange phenomenon I believe the old mystics call 'Blue Sky'.

So the 'scopes are out in the garden awaiting nightfall.

Anyone else risking it?

Not too bad for the first time out this year.

Looking mainly south at Jupiter, Orion and Pleiades.

Quite a lot of orange (not purple) haze.

I need to spend a while sorting out both 'scopes mounts, which may have to be a spring project...

I did pop out later on (after Star Gazing Live) with just the camera and a tripod and it was much clearer. I just need to get my head around Deep Sky Stacker to get the best out of the images
