La Palma is famous for its dark skies, right? Not last night. There was a brilliant moonlit Calima. I didn’t even bother counting stars because a single glance showed that I’ve had much better skies from central Oxford or Cambridge.

It didn’t stop me observing variables but the limiting magnitude was markedly poorer than usual.
