Thank You clear sky...


The Schmidt C8 behaved last night and returned some lovely views of the gas giant. 

The evening was cold, with not a hint of a breeze to disturb the viewing.

I managed to grab myself the above sketch of Jupiter. 

Earlier in the evening the crescent Moon had been busy looking gorgeous over in the west.


The viewfinder of the Jason refractor revealed the crescent.


I then managed to capture an image of the crescent Moon afocally through the Jason refractor.


It was a great evening for observing, probably the clearest evening we have had since last October!

Fingers crossed for more......PLEASE    :0))

Clear Skies
