I’m really pissed off at the moment!
For the last 10 days or so, we’ve had a pretty good streak of reasonably clear skies. The big problem is that  by the time it’s dark enough – about midnight – I’m so pooped that my bed is a more attractive proposition than the observatory 🙁 Even if I wasn’t, the full Moon blazing away, killed any faint glimmer of enthusiasm that I could muster 🙁
However, all is not lost. The Sun has been shining away during daylight hours, so why not try a little Solar observing. I also thought I would try my hand at some sketching. The results aren’t great, but it’s a start.
I did try and make these observations with the 250mm RC, but  the view was terrible, so downsized to the TMB 80 – much better!
