At last!!!!!!!

Hi gang,
Just couldn't resist posting to the forum as last night was the first time I've had the telescope out in over teo months, possibly three. The Moon did it's usual job of blocking DSO but the planets were glorious to say the least. Excellent!!

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"

Glad to hear you got a break in the weather. Let's hope the summer brings some nice clear skies. I'm looking forward to the 14th when the Moon should be setting by the time I get a chance to go out observing.

Regards

Last night was a stunning night for observations, once the clouds had departed. I had a wonderful time looking at Saturn, Alcor and Mizar, Alpha CnV, M63 and a few clusters. Best night's viewing for ages. Roll on more like that.

It's all gone pear shaped down here lately John;it's been a while since we had a really clear night with steady seeing.It cleared up last Saturday,but with the moon full and lousy seeing it may as well not have[:@]
