Friday, 10/5/19, 0055-0145 BST: Clear sky with some cloud interruption at mid-observation: Previously prepared chart and star-hop from omega 1 & omega 2 Scorpii were used and checked against "Heavens-above" chart and "Sky & Telescope" map. Used Olivon T50 on a light tripod from the back door. The area was by then just above the southern rooftops. Worked from the omegas to beta, to nu Scorpii and across to psi Ophiuchi. Above that can be found a little row of faintish stars before one gets to phi Ophiuchi. Ceres is on its way towards this line of stars, but is currently further to the left, above 24 Ophiuchi, one of four stars in an easily recognised pattern. I look forward to confirmation of movement during the next clear night. Regards maf
