I dusted off my old Celestron GT mount, clamped on the C5 and entered the coordinates for T-Lyrae, the carbon star near Vega. I was shocked at how dim it looks compared to the same time last year. I checked my notes from last year in October and it was significantly brighter and easier to locate. I would venture to say that I would have never found it without the goto mount this time. I know it is a variable star but would anyone know off hand if it is at its minimum?
