Mars 29th Nov 2007

Spent a bit of time tonight collimating my scope. Later I just managed to catch these red images in between the clouds (I have some blue filtered as well, although they're not up to much), seeing was about the same as last night.
2 seconds after I finished and closed my roof, it started to rain :-/

Comet 17P/Holmes 29th Nov 2007

The comet is so large now that I can't get a full view in my C9.25, even with the focal reducer. I used the 17-85mm lens on my Canon at full zoom.
Also below it, a nice view of Alpha Perseus Moving Cluster.

Mars 28th Nov 2007 R(G)B

Not very good seeing, I estimate about 4/10 and transparancy about 2/5
