frustrating skies (Richmond Hill)

As we walked out of the DDO admin building, our evening activities done, wouldn't you know it, we were greeted by clear skies!

Took in Orion, Pleiades up high, 5 to 6 stars visible, the Winter Football.

From the parking lot, took a quick look at Jupiter thought Malcolm's long 5" Astrophystics refactor atop a Losmandy G11. It was low in the sky at that point.

So, essentially only one Orion target for me then, over the evening. I got a good look at Rigel A and B in the 74" telescope. An easy split.

Headed home. I thanked Manuel for the transport.
