Initial Obs 3/10/

Full report to follow.
Finally got out for a decent session Sunday Night. Had about an hour and half on Friday but very cold and out of practice, so spent much of cruising the sights (47 Tuc, Jupiter etc.) Sat night looked clear but very high thin cloud knocked everything out. Sunday night was warm, still and clear with slmost no dew.
Best evr view of detail on Jupiter for about 1 minute of stunning seeing. The remaining belt was mottled and I could see lots of finer bands.
Got quite a few new galaxies which I will detail in my next report, just rapt to get some time at the eyepiece after so many months!
