Winchester: Pete and Paul's Observing Challenges

Hi all,

Attached here is the list of objects from the observing challenge that Pete and myself presented at Winchester this year.  The first challenge was the occultation of stars in the Beehive cluster by the Moon- alas cloudy here but I think Pete managed it, anyone see it?  This seems to be a good place to post your observations of the challenges as you do them and we can show them at Winchester next year.

Best of luck!

-Paul

Beehive Occultations

The weather was better for me, and I recorded 16 event in 3 hrs. Thanks for the challenge Paul - it was a good night apart from some drifting con-trails.
