hi all,

last week the moon stood high at the night sky, but I observed with my full tube 6" Dobson, so no moon light found a way at the mirrors.

18.April 2013, 20:40 UT
6" Dobson f/6, 42x

Dear Christian,

W had sunny days here in Leipzig but the air was always hazy. And clouds after sunset. I never could detect Cassiopeis's main stars and therefore did not have a chance to see PanSTARRS. Still waiting...

Very nice, Christian! Actually you've got a lot not guts than I have because with the moon so bright I didn't even bother to have a go at the comet. Well done! :D
