Ummm I don't want to jinx this but...

Recommended Posts

...there is a modicum of blue sky outside and the forecast seems to be for clearing skies with no cloud until 6 am.

Might I finally get a chance to try out my new kit?

I've blown it haven't I....:rolleyes:

I'm taking the scope outside just in case though.

Just typical, first clear night for ages and I've got to go out with SWMBO :rolleyes:

But weren't you telling me earlier that you're not feeling very well... perhaps you should stay in at let her go out by herself. I mean you wouldn't want to ruin her evening, would you... :eek:

Yep. Blown it. All set up at 9pm and ready to start imaging. First the clouds rolled in and they are still there. And, now my imaging laptop has crashed anyway. Marvelous!

Guiding tonite!!! :rolleyes::D

Just got some 20min subs from M42 along with some shorter ones for the core... gonna have a go at masks/layers (yikes!). Im just grabbing some more Ha from the Rosette before moving on to some L subs from M101. The wind has picked up a little bit though.

And another thick bank of cloud. There seems to be a lot of cloud forming off the north coast and dumping itself down here!

Just got back in, bit tipsy (bit more than tipsy:)), not got the right legs to go outside and wait for scope to cool down, (more like I'll be falling down before then), what a waste of a night for stargazing, but a good night for .................. can't think what it was good for :rolleyes:

Night folks
