Chilly .... I said chilly ....

OK, so no picture this time, but it was such a good night on Saturday (27th Nov.) that I just had to get the scope out. Things of interest were: Jupiter - still no southern equatorial band and no red spot when I viewed it (typical!) but four moons. M45 was splendid and clear. Orion nebula (M42) was really good - and I got this through a tree almost on the horizon - the air was soooo crisp! Then I was getting cold and my wife came for a look, so swung over to the Andromeda Galaxy M31 - what a sight that was - absolutely splendid!
All observations through 4in. Mak using low to medium power (no barlow).
