It just doesn't get any better...

Jupiter was fair- equatorial bands and 4 moons. M's 37 and 42 were spectacular as usual- I can only imagine what DSO's would be under truly excellent skies.
Because of my health my three adult children were there and helped me set up and view. Their reactions to these celestial showpieces was ecstatic and sincere.
That's an experience that contributes to the pricelessness of this hobby; as I said- it doesn't get any better. Tim

Let me say that there are many other show stoppers in the heavens besides these mentioned here. The key this time was the big kick I got out of sharing the views with my children. Tim
