Sugarloaf tonight? was created by Until_then-Goodnight!

Hi All,

It appears there could be a meet-up taking place at the Sugarloaf tonight. Provided the weather cooperates the session begins at 8pm. Anyone interested in heading down if it does go ahead?

Clear skies,

Darren.

Cheers Paul... Non-runner anyway as the weather forecast is not good.

All the best, 

Darren.

How about next Friday 17th September?
That is if it's clear. 
I won't mind a gibbous Moon. 

And my next carbon star in Cassiopeia is seriously faint. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Hi Aubrey,

I'd be keen to go next Friday if the weather's good.

Clear skies,

Darren.

Hello all.

It's not looking brilliant for Friday night I'm sorry to say. 
Just too much cloud is forecast. 
I haven't had a clear observing night since 27th August which was also a Friday. 

Last night (14/9/21} the skies were blissfully clear at 8pm. I had the scope fully set up.
But by 9pm 100% thick hazy conditions had arrived with a vengeance. 
I simply put everything away. 

It now seems as though these patterns are set to continue. 

Any thoughts?

Aubrey.

Hi Aubrey,

I share your pain. I too was preparing for a nice night of observing on the 14th, but I couldn't believe how quickly the clouds rolled in. And by the looks of things it will be a while until we get to observe again.

If there is a clear Friday, I'm always keen to head down to the Sugarloaf.

Hopefully, that will be soon. 

All the best,

Darren.
