Hey professor - how come you get all these nights to view the stars from the so called gloomy weather capital? It's been weeks here of cloud with the odd night of clarity which also ended up being bloody freezing.

Last night was a one in a hundred here in London, Ontario. Orion was simply amazing, and F making an appearance before the tree branches got in the way. I was out about 1 hour, and finally Saturn cleared the roof sufficiently. I swung the EQ mount over, and centred it in the finder. The 15mm Kelner showed banding immediately from top to bottom with Cassini as a bold black line. Within seconds the view became dimmer and dimmer by the second. It's called a "Hoar frost" where the dew settles and immediately turns to frost. The lens was covered along with the scope. So much for a night in a hundred. Forecast is more clouds, followed by more clouds. This has been one miserable winter for viewing. Consider yourself fortunate. Your drawings of the doubles has basically kept me going, and has been a treat. Thank you.
