Nice job! Hope the weather and the winds up there finally cooperate so you can use it...

Thanks!

You're right! The past couple of months have not been kind to astronomy up here in the mountains. I know it's winter but the past 60 days have been very restrictive. angry Much more than normal. I need to get some starlight! smile

Had to get up early this Saturday morning around 5am and the spring constellations were well overhead, no turbulence at all. I didn't have any time to take out the scope but just seeing Canes Venacti, Corvus, Virgo and Ursa Major riding high in the sky was a real treat. It's been about a year since I've seen those constellations high in the sky. Hope you get some viewing time soon...

Cool! I did get some observing in last night. The seeing was about 2" with passing high clouds. Had fun anyway! I played around in my favorite multiple star constellation of Orion. I even looked at some doubles in Lepus. Couldn't do too much deep sky observing with the moon and passing high clouds. M42 still looked good despite the sky brightness. I'm going to "be-bop" around Gemini and Auriga tonight if the high clouds will go away. Not looking good so far sad
