.. over much of the uk and the temperature is dropping fast. Looks like we could be in for the first decent imaging session of the Autumn Season.

I feel for you Paul.

I was guiding by 5:15 and imaging just after 5:30 (Ha so started before it was pitch black) Couple of hours of Pacman Ha in the tank by 7:30.

Clear again here. So trundle forth and set up G11. 15 min later Cloudy again. It isn't fair  :(

If there was anybody watching me they must have thought I was Basil Fawlty, standing their muttering, and shaking a fist at the sky.

Clear here in Maldon and still looking good. I've done nearly two hours and am hoping for another two. My first go using a 200mm lens with my CCD in Ha.

Just finished work and found ice on the bike seat. Thermals time. But I'm up early and still no obsy. I might get the cannon out for big J.
Woe unto him ..or her..who tries to guide the LX90. Let him..or her..rejoice in a lightweight scope upon the mighty EQ6. Mind you,I'd sooner be looking through my 6"f8 while the clouds look down the 8"f4 Le marchant configuration. And there should be a constellation called 'Camelot' and I would worship it in the anticipation of a big lottery win. Maybe I'll move to the Isle of Man..damn these drug

Hope you horrid lot over in the east are pleased with yourselves.... I looked at the met office IR satellite image and could see cloud coming and it duly arrives at 7:00 so didn't even bother setting up... we're been having lovely clear days here and giving you Easty people the clear nights as the pressure ridges move through.... one unhappy bunny !
