Bins to the rescue!

Bins to the rescue!

Postby philip pugh » Sat Mar 27, 2010 3:06 pm

Last night the weather was appalling. However, I noticed that the Moon was making it through some gaps in the cloud. Copernicus was on the terminator, a great sight. Had I tried to lug a telescope and camera out, I wouldn't have seen anything at all.

Sometimes the "grab and go" approach works.

HI There,
It was sureal out with my bins last night in the garden surrounded by frost glistening snowdrifts,[8D] It felt more like Christmas than Easter,but with the constellations twisted round.Ive certainly never gazed upon Antares in a bleak Midwinter landscape before.
Regards Les.

Had an interesting look out last night. After scanning the stars I saw something very bright in the west-Venus of course. But also a star to the right of it,which would be my first sight of Mercury!
