Quote:Although my English is very limited, I would guess, "night rake" means the same as "night owl", that would be "Nachteule" in German.
Quote:... Beim <<Night Owl>> geht es um anstaendige Leute wie wir, die nachtsueber, wenn moeglich, nur den Himmel beobachten, aber beim Begriff <<Night Rake>> geht es um solche >>Nachteulen<<, die nachts vom (Baum)-Stamm-(Tisch) zum Naechsten fliegen !...

Quote:Great report James. Many thanks. Glad you put your O111 filter to good use on M57 and M27. I am toying with the idea of adding the O111 to go with my UHC. The UHC is doing all I want at the moment so I'm undecided. Missed out on M57 on Friday, skipped passed it on my list. Hope you got a good view in the end. Neptune and Uranus are too low here for any useful observing. Good images from you of the two, thanks.I see you stayed out longer than me, you old night rake. Regards. Peter.
