What are we watching tonight?

Also we have a good transit of Jupiter going on with the Moonrise and Aldebaran close by. Think I will just bring out the small scopes and bino's.
Clear skies to all:)

I blinded myself looking at the moon and Jupiter. If I breathe near the eyepiece, I can see the light cone exiting the EP where it intersects with the breath-fog, if it's pointing at the moon.
Then I looked at a few washed-out DSOs until I made it to Beehive M44, which was bright enough to beat the background, but not so bright as to showcase the poor seeing (why do only bright stars twinkle so?). But then I made it to iota cancrii, which was really the highlight of the night. Nice colors on that double, and no need get out the shorter EPs just to split it.
Satisfaction comes in a flavor even for washed-out skies.

Hey it was almost like astronomy. The surgery was done with a laparoSCOPE.

There is something ancient in us with regard to fire.
