It was probably cloudy.
You may have had a better view dreaming it.
Rain again today, and yesterday.

Hi Eddie how goes it mate.Have you got a set of wheels yet?
Looking at the pair out over the sea must have been a great sight.
We have a new Darksite as well mate,much better than the one i showed you before,
Karl and i saw N.G.C.1614 or 1647 i think it is just above the Hyadesthis was at least mag +6.
We'll go up one night see what you think,personally i reckon you'll be very impressed.

. I didn't go to bed because I thought maybe I wouldn't want to get up again ... for all the good it did as a group of us met up and stared at a cloudy sky for 90 mins. Really worth staying up till 4.00am

Still no car.
Not until next year I think. yep defo up for a trip to Bish Auk again. Take my scope up next time, and compare the views from a 8" SCT to a 300mm Dob. Sept, the skies should be getting dark enough to get the fuzzy wuzzies again.

Had a gp with my 20x80's last night.
fantastic. nabbed a dozen Messiers in less than 20 minutes. Crystal optics and not as heavy as you would think.
Alberio split easily.
Away 3 - 18 Aug on jollies, but free any time from then, apart from a Sunday and Monday.
