You guys up in the frozen north have it lucky.

I find it very frustrating that Polaris is only 28 degrees above the horizon from here. Even worse, my fork mount won’t allow pointing at anything above a Declination of 75N or the camera hits the mount. Guess where C/2022 E3 is tonight …

With luck it will be far south enough to give me a chance in a few days but, of course, the moon will then be very near full.

Life, don’t talk to me about life.


P.S. now the ****ing filter wheel has just packed up and I must go back to the dome to see what needs to be kicked into submission. Almost always a Windoze/USB failure.
