Clear In the South
« on: 17:43:18, 04 December, 2014 »
Well every weather report I have looked at suggests that we southerners are (over)due a clear one tomorrow night. Just one minor problem 99.41% full moon  :'(

They (Met Office, ClearOutside etc...) said it was going to be clear here last night. It wasn't. now the forecast is for clear after 10pm on Fri night, I won't be holding my breath, and that moon is not only bright it's just in the wrong place altogether for any of my prospective targets. Maybe I'll try for some subs of Polaris - in H-alpha....

Same here in Lincoln. I'm still going to go out and take pictures though, even just for practice. I need to get the guiding settings sorted out for the new mount if nothing else. I'd like to add some OIII to my Rosette but not sure how the moon will affect it. Or should I say, how BADLY the moon WILL affect it. *shrug* Won't know until I try though hey? :)

OIII is probably the worst impacted by a full moon. Its also in about at bad a position tomorrow night as it could be.

I'll probably give OIII a miss then eh? ;)
