Well, even though I haven't had the time yet to get the Skywatcher out it has been a pretty awful summer here in the UK. Apparently the wettest (and presumably cloudiest) August since records began.
I can't remember the last time we had a clear sky at night, must have been the night we went out back in July for my birthday when Jupiter was gleaming away.
It seems like a long time since I was setting up the Skywatcher after work and waiting for the first stars to appear :o(
Let's hope the winter is better than the the summer!
