An unexpectedly clear night last night – spent all the time working on the Hyperstar – managed to get about 90% of the way there in setting it up, next outing should see it imaging again 🙂
So what are the chances of two clear nights in a row?? Pretty remote according to my Diary. However, Meridian Weather are due to be here at the New Forest Observatory tonight for a live broadcast (watch Meridian TV from about 6:15 p.m. onwards to follow the action) talking about the near fly-by asteroid 2012 DA14 which will make an appearance a little later in the evening. I have the mini-WASP array primed and ready to go as well as a Canon 5D MkII which I might try out in video mode just to see what happens. In case of poor sky conditions I have the indoor control centre hooked up to 5 live broadcasts – so one way or another I should be able to see the little blighter during this evening.
