I was aligning the mount and used saturn - but it was about 9.30pm so I missed the exit. Conjunction was nice sight in the finderscope though.

We're getting some high cloud in now.

Hi Guys,

I missed the ingress due to cloud but was right there for the egress - webcammed up I hit record at 2105 BST and got a 5 min capture which was perfect. Here's a 1 min clip of the movie which is speeded up 2x so covers 2 mins of real time. A bit compressed but not bad nevertheless!

Enjoy!

Paul.

Great movie Paul.

I watched it from Glencullen in South dublin with a few others.

We were luck as the cloud cleared at ingress and egress :D
