Quote:For the past several years, the Clear Sky Clock has increasingly become inaccurate in Mobile. Often when clear, transparent skies are forecast, it is not only overcast, it's raining. During the past three montths, I can only think of two or three nights where the skies were tolerable for observing DSO's at lower magnifications. The seeing here has been poor to so bad I cannot focus my telescopes at all.Taras
