Well; I was indeed, windy. I am so glad that I was fortunate enough to get off work Thursday night and get some observing done that night. As a matter of fact, the view I had of Saturn at 320X in the Nexstar 11 was one of my best ever, the seeing was really excellent on Thursday evening. Lots of detail on the ball of the planet, spokes in the rings and the crepe ring was easy all the way around. Terrific. On Friday night, Joe Goss and I kinda waited for the clouds to go away and they would open up for a while and then close back down for a while. It was a waiting game. Glen Nishimoto and Jeff V. were there and I had a great view of the Sun on Friday afternoon in Jeff's H-alpha filter. Super prominences. I did get some deep sky observing done among the clouds. Also, Joe and I did lots of planets so we could be the only two who actually did the planet mania challenge at Sentinel. Results later. Then the winds came. On Saturday the wind picked up during the day and never really let up. So, we fought it for a while and then just gave up and came home. Maybe next New Moon we can try again.....just a thought.
