Yes, we win some and we lose some. I don’t actually lose very much useful sky as Dec +75 reaches a maximum altitude of 43 degrees and a minimum of 13 degrees from here and I don’t much like doing photometry below 30 degrees altitude unless it is really necessary. I have always really loathed meridian flips.

HL CMa was nice and high in the sky here (just to make you jealous 🙂 — there are advantages to having a low celestial pole — until cloud stopped play. 1 made it V=12.33 tonight.
