Hello everyone. 

Does anyone know how Friday night is looking at the Sugarloaf?
Right now, it seems we will have reasonably good clear skies later in the day.. 
Although there is plenty of rain in the morning and afternoon on the east coast.

Clear skies from Aubrey. .

It looks like mostly clear to about 1AM.
It might be windy though.

There is a meetup planned for tomorrow at 8.

Thank you for coming back to me, Michael. 
It seems to be a runner so. 

See you at 8pm on Friday. 

I wonder who will be meeting up with us this time round. 
I'm hoping to observe some easy doubles in Leo for the last time until next winter. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Delighted to read it's going ahead... I'm looking forward to getting your thoughts on the new eyepiece Aubrey and Michael. 

I can't make it for 8pm, but I'll be there by 9pm. I'm going to try and sketch some Globular Clusters - I've never tried to sketch these objects, so if anyone here on forum has I'd love to hear from you. 

See you tomorrow gents, 

Darren.

We will most likely have to put up with some clouds tonight in the car park. 

But at least there shouldn't be any rain. 
And it will be great to have this meet-up with our friends. 

Best regards from Aubrey.

Hi Darren

I have sketched globulars in the past, there are some examples on the site if you care to look for them.  I found the best method, for me anyway, is to sketch the background stars that remain unresolved as a misty patch and then superimpose the visible stars on top.  A blending stump and charcoal, lightly applied, gives a great misty appearance.
