hi all,

yesterday I saw chance the star 49 Vir ( 5.1mag)
very close "over" the moon.
The seeing was bad because the atmosphere disturbed,
and the mirror was not cooled.
So the star was fuzzy.

15.7.2013, 10" Dobson f/5 V 130x

1) 20:36:30 UT
~20:36:50 UT - minimum 15" above the moon
2) 20:37:10 UT
3) 20:37:50 UT
4) 20:38:10 UT
5) 20:40:00 UT

Bye
Christian
