It was deceptively clear tonight. I say deceptively, because upon setting up my 'scope on my balcony, it quickly became apparent that the air, while clear, was very turbulent. Shake, shake, shake went the image. No imaging tonight!
The human eye is an excellent video camera, though. It knows how to take the one moment of perfect conditions and let the mind explore it for much longer than it actually lasts.
The Moon was 11.8 days old today. The crater Vieta was extremely prominent on the terminator, and seeing was occasionally good enough to see the smaller craters within it. Overall, the whole complex from Vieta to Henry was mesmerising. A decent photo of what I saw was taken by the New Millennium Observatory.
Note the new "observations" category. This is really mostly for my own reference in future years. I don't expect that too many people will be interested in reading it.
