      hi.. i've uploaded a couple of pics of tonights viewing session..
      managed to get another image of jupiter before the fog ruined the nights
      viewing..

      i was using the meade astro programme to control the telescope tonight,
      but it seemed to be fighting the onboard tracking, couldn't keep
      anthing in view.. so just disconnected for now until i look a little
      further..

      managed to get a view of Andromeda and an iridum flash thsi evening
      also.. i was quite surprised how bright that flash was.. certinaly
      brighter than the ISS, and seem to flicker 3 or 4 times also, wonder if
      that was reflections from other parts of the satellite..

      With the light pollution, i was not expecting much from viewing
      Andromeda , but managed to see the smudge in the EP...

      oh.. and a hand rolled cardboard tube with elastic bands seemed to do
      the trick as a dew shield..



      cheer guys..
