Aloha Johnny, It’s not affecting it much. Maybe right above the horizon but I don’t spend much time observing there anyway. When the volcano first erupted again and there was particulate matter, I did notice hazy skies. But not since then. It doesn’t affect my telescope observing but it does mess up...

Well, my happy new year prediction of “it’s gonna be a great year” did not age well. 🤣

Here’s hoping 2021 will be a better year!

I was shocked to see the headline. And even more shocked that they knows of the problem after the first cable had collapsed. What a waste.

Anyone do afocal photography with a smart phone? Night sky photos are incredible with the newer iPhones but for photos through the eyepiece/telescope, planets are always overexposed. Anyone have an app they like?

Cool! Yeah, I can relate about the seeing. We have amazingly dark skies here in Hawaii but sometimes viewing planets at high magnification is tough. DSO’s are great, of course, but planetary viewing was actually much better when I lived in California. Oftentimes, we have too many upper level winds i...

Jason,
I wish I had the patience for sketching. I did take this terrible photo of Mars the other night though. :lol:

Wow, I haven’t seen Mars this impressive since 2006. What’s odd though is I’m not seeing the polar ice caps, just lots of surface detail (canals anyone? :lol:)

Very impressive though. Anyone else getting amazing views of the red planet during this close approach?

How did I miss this thread! Beautiful pics and nice night sky.

Have you observed Mars lately? I’ve got it on my list since it’s that time.

Lol that’s okay. This seems like a thread that’s gone in a few directions (mostly my fault) so I thought I’d add to the chaos. 😂

Thanks Jason! Yes, taken with the iphone handheld up to the eyepiece. The 11 Pro Max is actually able to do 20 second exposures so I can get some nice widefield sky shots. It also has image stabilization which helps a lot.

Very nice, Jason!!! A lot better than what we got here in Hawaii. Our low northern latitude made it a bit more difficult to see and of course the moon is getting brighter now but we got some good views the other night. :-)

I actually caught it the other night and it was pretty good. Not Hale-Bopp by any means but pretty nice. Justine and I spent over an hour viewing it and then when it got too low we looked at various other objects with binos and the 80mm refractor. Tried to get pics of it but they aren’t very good.

Hey Jason,
I’ve seen it only under poor conditions. Tried to take pics but they didn’t come out well. It was an averted vision object to see the tail. And now we have a hurricane approaching so I won’t get another chance. :-(

This may be the best comet since Hale-Bopp in the 90’s. Going to check it out tonight, visible around 4am.

Haha yeah I was a bit nervous! But Hawaiian honeybees are pretty chill. If it was one of those African bees, I’d have ran the other direction.
