went deep (Blue Mountains)

Steve and I pushed. Tried to go deep. Around 10:30, we spotted a magnitude 6.2 in Ursa Minor. All right.

10:47. Steve took readings with the Sky Quality Meter. 21.19, 21.14, 21,13, 21.17. The temperature reading was 11°C.

10:53. Deeper still! Mag 6.4. Sweet!

Checked my lift list. Broke the previous best of 6.0 in March 2010. Yes!

I thought it curious that Tom could not see the stars Steve and I were seeing. I postulated that our eyeglass prescriptions were different.
