Observing Report - A bit Stale.

I know this is a bit stale, but for anyone that is interested, I have posted an observing report for some observing I did at Kumeu Observatory west of Auckland, about 10 days ago. It's only a brief report as my health still limits how late I can observe.

I have now fully switched to Astroplanner for my logging. It's a bit sad...I have logged in Skymap Pro for nearly 9 years. Next observing session I will break the 3000 individual objects logged.

You will find my report at;

Thanks

Nice report Paul, better late than never! The Pyxis globular is an excellent sighting, nice to read about it. Hope your health continues to improve...

Cheers -

Good report. The Pyxis Globular is one object I wanted to try but has been fully overcast in melbounre for a full straight month.

The Pyxis Globular is tough. I had to confirm it with some other sets of eyes!!

Thanks for posting, I've actually read your observing reports in the past as well and find them very interesting.

That's a cool setup you have access to at the Kumeu observatory! Wish there was something like that near Wellington.

Thanks for your kind comments.

It's a labour of love, and often takes as long to do the data entry as the observing itself.

However, what I have done in the past, drives me to continue.
