Great session! As per the trend of the past 4 nights, sky gets clearer towards midnight.

Phone camera shot. Arcturus, Spica, Saturn forming a prominent triangle in the sky.

Saturn so sharp so clear. Jewel box looking more like a box of stars. Double colorful stars shining brightly and splitted cleanly. The crowd enjoyed the views and learning to identify the constellations!

At one time, there is this super adorable little girl who kept walking round and round the telescope setup as if it was a playground object while the sidewalk was going on! All of us had a great laugh watching her enjoying herself. The simple innocent pleasures of life!

Again, very impressed by what a humble 6" SCT can do in such sky conditions. Saturn was only very slightly inferior to the views I saw a week ago at the rooftop observatory through the big guns. To be fair, bright Moon was near Saturn that night.

So Dave, be prepared to bring your C6 to the observatory soon. James & Alfred will be waiting .... [smilie=evil-smile.gif]
