Clear skies

Dr Paul Leyland

Faced with the difficulty of getting to La Palma where my observatory is located, I purchased a 10″ Dobsonian cloud maker on eBay so that I could at least try to do something.

It was dispatched on Friday and will likely arrive just in time for the requested observations.

Sorry folks, but tonight is probably the last clear night until June, by which time it won’t get dark at night anyway.

(Added in edit) It arrived a couple of hours ago, and very effective it is too. Rain has been persisting it down since last night.
