woke up @ 4am + and noticed that the early morning sky (Wed 22nd Nov) had a thin layer of cloud afixed I woke up at 5:45am this morning too. Not bad, saw a few stars. It seems there's a better chance of seeing clear sky early in the morning. From now on I will get up early rather than struggle to s...

I mistook the sunspot for Mercury... -__- We had a good laugh when Zong informed me about the mistakes. :lol: Thanks for inviting us Zong. My son got up without throwing tantrum knowing that we were going to see mercury transit. He is still happy about the whole thing. Put it this way, we still hav...

Is that near KL? I understand its a valley, so smog from the city tend to accumulate there. Rich, I guess you have confused between Kluang and Klang. They are two different places. Klang is next to KL but Kluang is in Johor. I stayed in Kluang for about 1 week but that was about 20 years ago. Kluan...

Who has been joining Zongyao for his Toa Payoh observation?
I have been saying I want to join Zongyao but as you said luck has not been with us for the past few weeks, sigh! Virtually no outdoor activities for me and kids, so have been an uninteresting human being since then.

Hi, Just curious, what do you guys do given such weather condition ... apart from equipment discussion? I see a lot of equipment discussion in various threads but I am not a gadget person and would avoid handling equipment unless I have absolutely no choice. All I want is the haze to clear so that I...
