Hi all

 

A couple short bursts of fair seeing intermixed with long periods of poor, resulted in these views compiled from 4 mins of data centered on 22:12 & 23:12UT. Max altitude for these was 32 degrees. Hoping for better conditions soon.

 

Thanks for looking

Very nice Agapios! 

 

My best seeing was around 22:44 u.t. Did you image that time?

Yes I was imaging almost constantly from 21:51 to 23:42. At 22:44 UT was maybe my worst of the set. Interesting.

I didn't think that seeing could be different in a small distance. Maybe we should search Cyprus for the location of best planetary seeing? Mazotos?

I stronlgy suspect the NW shores must often have superb conditions. I have been there once many years ago for observing and happened to find spectacular seeing, much better than anything I have seen since. Mazotos also has good seeing at times when the winds are favorable. 

 

Also, mt Olympus has good seeing under some circumstances.

I think we have to devote some nights going and trying these places.
