A few night before however Nick and I managed some good viewing from a "local" back garden. Always entertaining there with lots of small creatures keeping us company.
Nick was very patient with my attempts to webcam a variety of objects through the 8inch scope. Two photos are shown here
- one of venus ( actaully this one is with my ETX a few nights later).
- the other is actually some stars in the Orion Nebula taken that night - goodness knows which ones though.
Mercury Jupiter and finally Venus were quite spectacular over these Months. Even last night (21st Feb) people were finally noticing that "bright star" in the evening sky.
