Imaging last night and managed to get FWHM as low as 1.1” in 300s exposures so it was good in northern Melbourne if nowhere else.

Can't quite say I agree Bigjoe. Although the past week was a bit sketchy, Monday evening (28th) was some of the most consistent excellent seeing I've had from Syd all year, good from early evening to after 11pm. Good bits of late July, Aug and Sept have been great for me (south Sydney), and incomparably better than March to June!

And the good news is that the forecast for Friday and Saturday is really good seeing and clouds-wise (surprising to get them both!), hope they are good for you

Andy see my recent other post" Mars after Midnight" there was 1 or 2 great nights earlier where I saw GREAT DETAIL particularly on Mars in an obstructed 6inch scope at hand..
Cheers Bigjoe.

Yeah we've had some bouts of good seeing but overall it's been terrible on the east coast. Saturday is clear here in Sydney west and tracking says the new camera is on board for delivery today so guess where I'll be Saturday night.
