Hi all

Possibility of some clear skies, if anyone wants to journey out.  Say, 8.00?

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

Hi Paul,

I'd be up for it alright.

I thought tonight was looking good. I had my scope (an f/5 250mm Newtonian Reflector on a Dobsonian base) set up from 7pm, The sky was nice at that point, but by 7:30pm it was clouded over. In saying that, I did manage a 30min session.

Jupiter and Saturn looked very nice at 139X. Both Equatorial Belts were observed, as were four of Jupiter's Moons. Ganymede, Io, and Europa were on Jupiter's Eastern side, while Callisto was quite a distance out to the West. I then managed a quick look at Saturn. Titan was observed, and I noticed how the rings were casting a shadow on the Planet. It was very nice indeed. I had planned to try and sketch NGC129 - thanks for the suggestion Aubrey - but I can give that a go on Friday night, hopefully.

Clear skies,

Darren.

Hi Stephen,

Click on the 'Observing Sites' link on the left hand side of the screen.
Type Glencullen in the search box and the location will appear on the map.

If you are driving from Kilternan, take the right turn just after St Patrick's church.
The entrance is marked church car park. If you have a look at Google street view, there is a Polling Station sign on the entrance.

Michael.
