Mike,

Glad your gamble payed off. I saw the hole opening in the radar map around 7pm and was betting it would be clear at PR around 10pm.

Hello Mike,

I'm also glad it went well for you. I didn't know that Pluto was a naked eye item. I have so much light pollution in my back yard. M53 was just a fuzzy with my 25/40 X 100 binoculars and I couldn't see anything in the Virgo Galaxy clusters.

Eric,
Just to clarify "naked eye Pluto" is a term used frequently by another member.
Actually, I didn't dress warm enough and froze. Bill managed to image Saturn, hopefully he gets some good pics from the data.

The Saturn photos are pretty disappointing. Recognizable but not worth posting. I'll have to confer with Simon Porter - he's got the best planetary photos.

Bill,
Sorry to hear about the pics. Maybe tonight. The clear sky clock looks good and I plan to go to my Dad's place and play with his Meade 12"
