First light, short, sweet and -33

Recommended Posts

I got home early this am and had the 12" Dob sitting out already. Dawn was not far off but figured I'd throw around the scope and take a look see what I could find. We have a front pushing in from the arctic, temperature dropped 17 degrees in four hours, but being a good Northern boy had to try the new scope. Hit Saturn right of the bat had it focused in pretty nicely and was thinking of changing lens when the planet began to sparkle. It looked truly amazing, image looked like it was covered with diamonds and sparkling like a disco ball. The light sparse cloud cover must be loaded with ice crystals. Am i wrong about what I was seeing, regardless I'm sure I'll never forget that sight.:)
