Hi,

We are having a rare clear night in NE Ohio tonight. My gear is packed in the back of the car and I'm heading out in a bit.

Hope you have a good trip!

Glad you have cooperating weather for a change. All of Lebanon is pretty badly light polluted, although it is usually clear. I'll bet there are some good observing places in the hills out in the countryside.

Here in the Sunshine State, there's been so much rain (especially over the headwaters and lake that feed the river I live on) that I have to monitor the river in case I have to move the motorhome. But this is routine, as the RV pad is in the low point of the yard, next to the now-flooded woods...

Hi all! You, Rick, like me are seizing the moment of rarity here. I mean...it was freaking clear last night and tonight looks to be even better!
I shot M27 last night with my 14" Meade LX850 ota on my AP1200 mount. This is in the Hubble Platform" filtration.

Nice work as usual Cuz!. I'll try to catch you guys in the AM for breakfast. Just got back from IL and have to leave again for CT in a couple days. Been home about a week out of every month for a while. Gotta make hay while the sun shines I reckon.

Happy birthday too old timer!

"if there are any"

Mods or beer drinkers?

Clouds clouds clouds and more
THAT'S what's been going on.

I did have the solar stuff set up this past Sunday and got to see some great views in h-a. White light was rather dull, however.
Hey, congratulations on your new job!

I got back home yesterday from attending the AstroBlast Star Party near Franklin, PA.

The weather could be described as 3 days of a nearly continuous parade of broken clouds with some breaks lasting for 5 hours at most.

Friday night I got my setup polar aligned before the hole closed. Saturday night was totally clouded, despite numerous forecasts to the contrary. Ever the optimist, I stayed at the site Sunday night and the clouds cooperated until about 2 AM. My next target was going to be that supernova in M74.

I was able to get images for a couple of targets and hope to have them processed in the next couple of days.
