Tuesday June 15 Pedros 2010

Although not that clear a very well attended evening - numbers upto 30
Still dodging the clouds we saw
The Moon 3 days old
M4 near Antares (Scorpius was an excellent sight rising in the SE )
Omega Centauri
Southern Cross and the "Jewels"
Alpha Centauri
The Double Star in Scorpio ( Graffias )
Trifid Nebula ( the steam from the teapot rising over the Palm trees! how exotic!)
Apart from the Society Dobsonian I bought my small 60mm refractor along - for a few photos of the moon which came out well

Nick tried to shut the meeting down at 9:pm but with little effect - a very busy evening
