Unable to resist these mild, heady days of November, a small group of us met on the hill at Binbrook for a lovely night under the moon and stars.
Jim, Jackie, Andrew, Don, Heather, Moe and I all enjoyed lovely views through five different scopes. Andrew's big dob showed the dust lanes in the Andromeda galaxy very well, and Heather did some fine star hopping to locate Uranus. I enjoyed a wonderful moon and the good company.
The Moon and Jupiter set into the west, while their reflections rise to meet them.
The moon showed a wealth of detail. This image was shot afocally by holding my camera up to the eyepiece of my telescope.
The Double Cluster in Perseus, a fall classic. This is a single 3 minute exposure taken through my 80mm refractor. The original image shows a bucketful of stars
