Maybe Tonight?

It has not looked this promising in a long time. Clear blue sky, North easterly should drop after dark. Humidity very low. Just past New Moon. What more can we ask?
Scope is setup in the Observatory ready to go.

Yes, tonight lived up to its promise. Just closed the roof of the Observatory after couple of hours touring the favourites. No mozzie at all, slight breeze, low humidity, too warm for dew. Seeing was very steady, no wobbles at all here. I didn't go out there till 11:45 intentionally, I wanted many of the Southern Gems to get up above 45 degrees, and to allow "real dark" to settle in. Best visual night in a long time. That will do me for awhile.

Clear nights ahead

Finally, after a long stretch of smoke, cloud, lightning and dust storms we have had a couple of nights with clear skies. The air is now smelling fresh and clean. Time to spend a few night hours outside again.
