Last Night's Viewing

Ian Stewart

Took a break from imaging last night and setup the 5inch refractor. Seeing was just OK but still enjoyable. Planets were good, tons of milky way objects to look at but the star for me last night (no pun intended) was Herschel's Garnet Star. For some reason it seemed so much redder and brighter than usual. It may have been the wee dram of scotch too. Nonetheless a wonderful evening under the stars.
