Quote:Yep, I've been out the last 3 nights.
Tonight was pretty much a moon and Jupiter night since the moon is washing out all of the DSOs. I hadn't originally planned on going out tonight, but clear skies have become somewhat of a rarity around here.
Quote:Yep.. I missed last night though as it clouded over around 10 when I was able to get out.. Tonight was some doubles.. Not seeing the dsos I was looking for either . A least my neighbor didn't put on their stadium lights.. Not that it would have mattered with that moon. Surely I'm not the only amateur astronomer completely uninterested in the moon? Sure it makes a nice picture.. But after that.. It's all the same.
