    Nice pictures Reggie. I've had a good 17 sessions this April, most around 3 hours duration. Usually April is rainy and sky-porridge season here. Admittedly the transparency hasn't been too brilliant, but I've had some enjoyable observing. On the 15th I was sweeping around Auriga with my ED72, something I don't often get to do because of the weather this time of year, and Auriga eventually approaches extinction by May. I had arrived in Auriga from Melotte 20 (Alpha Persei Cluster) and was sweeping around Cappella. I found the Starfish and Pinwheel Clusters and got a pretty good view of M37 and M35. It's been ages since I saw those.

    And don't forget the Cheshire Cat asterism near M38!

    Featuring a young Joolz Holland on keyboards.



    Every song Glen Tilbrook and Chris Difford wrote was a complete story. Although it helps if you understand Estuary slang I suppose lol.
