three planets (Blue Mountains)

Set up the new Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer south-east of the Geoff Brown Observatory. Did a quick polar alignment, double checking in SkyTools and the Android app. Aimed south to catch the three planets arcing across the sky. Saturn and Mars in Scorpius; Jupiter below Leo. Sadly, the clouds over Toronto kicked back a lot of light...
