It didn’t take long for some high cloud to come and hide the deep sky objects from our telescopes, but for the few members who made the journey we did manage to get to see some stuff. M57 and M31 were the only deep sky objects. We got a faint look at comet Hergenrothe and a nice view of Uranus. A bit later we had some nice views of Jupiter as it rose above the trees. It was nicely framed by the Galilean satellites which formed a rectangle surrounding the disk of the planet and on which several bands could be seen. One of our members even managed to get a picture of it on his phond through the scopes eyepiece!
Our last observing session, 16th October.
