|Tonight at 18:38GMT|
Last night's "Moon & Jupiter" event was cancelled!!... due to heavy snow and sleet.
Most of Pembrokeshire these past few days has been covered with a blanket of snow.
Though sadly..or should I say gladly!!!...here in Simpson Cross, last night's snow storm has completely melted.... and we have not one flake of snow in our garden as I write this post....
Pembrokeshire's grey skies of late gave way to a wonderful clear evening tonight, so I decided to roll back the observatory roof and try some imaging of old Luna.......
I wondered what the seeing would be ?
Tonight the view of the Moon, through my telescope here at Simpson Cross was around II on the Antoniadi Scale.
The Antoniadi Scale.
II. Slight quivering of the image with moments of calm lasting several seconds.
III. Moderate seeing with larger air tremors that blur the image.
IV. Poor seeing, constant troublesome undulations of the image.
V. Very bad seeing, hardly stable enough to allow a rough sketch to be made.
I like to add a sixth entry to my log book....
VI. Pembrokeshire Clouds, totally unable to see a thing, stay in bed. :0)
Tonight's Moon Photos taken with my Tal1 reflector, 25mm eyepiece and digicam.
|North is DOWN...|
|South is UP...|
Tomorrow night the Moon and the Pleiades are only 2 degrees away from each other...
If they reached out... they could probably shake hands..... :0))
Fingers crossed for some fine Pembrokeshire weather....
