Star Gazing Live starts again tonight

Apparently they are in Australia, so I'm more than a little curious about the logistics of "live" stargazing from downunder...

It seems to have finally occurred to them that January is not the best time to host a live observing programme in the UK! Doing some astronomy in the southern hemisphere is certainly something I would like to do before bidding farewell to my mortal existance, so I'll be interested from that point of view.

Like you I wondered about the 'live' part of it. However, they could still gaze at stars 'live' to the UK when it is early evening here. It would be just before dawn in eastern Australia, but a few hours earlier than that in western Australia. It is possible.

Saturn will be high in the sky from Ayres Rock, and I will be very envious. :mrgreen:
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
