Astro Time and Date Info Planner
« on: 22:17:03, 30 March, 2016 »
Hopefully this post is in the correct section? 

I have been using the attached link on both my phone and laptop for quite some time and the page contains a lot of useful information, particularly when you may not have full or easy access to a set of planetarium software i.e. mainly my mobile.  If you scroll down the page the different sections are very helpful (IMHO) for planning your imaging sessions either by day or the coming week. 

If you agree, I hope you enjoy the information ease of use.

Handy

the updated Meteoblue Astronomical page is also pretty good https://www.meteoblue.com/en/weather/forecast/seeing/wymondham_united-kingdom_2633445, I find the seeing prediction pretty accurate here

Thanks for the link Chris, yes another one on my list of resources, but I am always very sceptical with the so called weather forecast sites.  I think my favourite is still http://sat24.com/ and use of the Mk1 eyeball as my local conditions are very often 180 degrees out from what all the major forecasters predict.

Hopefully tonight looks promising!

Fingers crossed. Just swapped over scopes in the obsy so could do with a clear one to get everything humming along again.

W/O FLT110 with new focuser which needs calibrating for Kelling next week then the RC will go on for the summer. Also swapped the NB filters for RGB (&Ha).

Sounds like a nice set-up. I plan on swapping my FSQ106 for my 5" triplet as soon as time allows. Jim
