I got a great view from my front garden.  With the 10x50 binoculars they looked wonderful and easily split with the naked eye.

Been and gone. Sorry i didn't get to speak to any of you. Had my two boys there and there was so many people there, i didn't want to be dragging them around to hunt yous down.

Nice view of them from the Sugarloaf. Hope you all got a good look. Hopefully talk to you all soon enough. Have a great, clear Christmas and New Year.

Delighted to hear that Paul. It seemed like the conditions were better tonight. The view from the Sugar Loaf was great. It is a surreal feeling seeing Jupiter and Saturn in the same FOV. I wonder if the weather will play ball for us tomorrow. 

Clear skies, 

Darren.

This is Ireland, Darren, what do you think?

Thanks for all the reports, sorry that I can't join in the sessions - just oo busy at the moment.

Lucky with the weather in Dublin this evening.  The conjunction was great, even from my home in the southern suburbs. I took a few shots with a telephoto lens anf the one below is the best of a bad lot.  It shows Callisto, Ganymede and Europa very faintly, with the two planets overexposed, though the elliptical shape of Saturn is clear.  It's striking that Staurn is not much futher from Jupiter than is Callisto.  The forecast for tomorrow is not so promising so it's unlikely that I'll get another shot tomorrow.

Cheers,
Mike
