Hi all

If anyone is up for a night at the Sugarloaf on the 17th, meeting will be at 8 pm. The 17th is the night of the Leonid meteor shower, with luck we will catch some.

Long range forecast looks promising.

However the wind will keep the dreaded dew away.

Hello, Paul and Michael.
I don't think we will be having clear skies at the Sugarloaf Car Park unfortunately.
What I pity! I had a full 3 hour observing session on Thursday night.
I will be submitting a report as to what I saw later on.

It is Valerie's birthday on Saturday; so I won't be available then also.

Maybe we could try for next Friday night 25th November at the same location.
But why not?
There is a 6 day old Moon -I know.

At this moment I am backing out, too cloudy, I will keep an eye out for the next hour or so to see if there's an improvement.

Hi Paul,

You missed a good evening. There were five of us the the end and we stayed until 11 or so.

The South and East of the sky were mostly clear.

I saw Uranus, Neptune, asteroids Iris, Nysa and Julia. and a few of the brighter fuzzzies.

I ended the evening with M42.

Michael.

Nice to hear, I guess I'll never make a weather forecaster.

By reckoning it was a splendid evening too.
The chat was great. Seeing was not great for doubles.
I could not get a split on Zeta Aquarii even at 167X.
The Crab Nebula (M1) was easy to sight.
We also saw a very bright Leonid. A first for me.

Michael and I find that the "clear outside" website a very useful tool.
It even includes Roundwood as well as Bray and Greystones.

By the way, Paul, thank you for your phone message.

Aubrey.
