Description

Clear nights have been getting rarer these days. Bush fires in the Blue Mountains knocked me out for 6 months year before last and this summer has been hot and wet so another 6 months of nothing. Finally, after torrential rain and once in a 100 year flooding, winter has finally arrived with a new moon and without neighbours' lights ... so NB was out and M83 was well placed for decent long run in RGB. Seeing was ordinary but no complaints. It has been a long time between feeds.
