52 degrees Low Humid
Went out last night to observe the waxing moon. It appeared to be average visibility night on Long Island with the moon clearly visible. Through the scope however view was below average. The previous night I was resolving images at almost 300x seemed to max around 200x last evening. Makes you really appreciate those clear nights.
Also tried for some dso's but the seeing was so bad I gave that. Tried to find Neptune as it was several degrees above moon giving me a good jump off point. I have no idea if I saw it or not. Was pretty sure I saw a dot that appeared tinted blue but so small it could of just been wishful thinking that a star was Neptune.
Skysafari said it was 7.8 magnitude. Would that even be visible with 8inch dob from suburban skies? Uranus was 5.7 any chance that would be visible?
