Tonight the skies were beautifully clear. I decided to give the 40mm refractor a bit of an airing.
The crescent moon looked amazing as it hung over the nearby rooftops.
I was able to capture a few shots afocally with the digicam.
It was so warm that we decided to sleep in the garden shed, with our heads peeping out of the doorway.
I haven't seen NLC's since July of 2009......!!!
No Schmidt telescope for me tonight, just the naked eye, a sleeping bag, a heart full of poetry and the stars above....
