the seeing is awful here ( jordan lake ) but the transparency was amazing.
Lots of wind but still a big crowd.
the view of the Orion nebula here at Jordan lake was off the hook for this
location in my opinion. The moon and jupiter suffered from the bad seeing,
which was fine for people who rarely saw this stuff, but the Orion nebula
was something to see!
The crescent moon was still good, despite the wind, and caught a few nice
clusters, Andromeda, and the Eskimo nebula was nice - esp for my 6"
telescope. Good views for the deep space stuff.
If I wasn't under such a crunch this week I would call in sick monday and
go to Medoc tomorrow night - Sunday night - for a predicted *amazing* night
of transparent clear, steady perfect skies.
