    Last night, moon's closest approach to Jupiter (85mm focal length):

    Jupiter is the bright blue dot above the moon, and the Pleiades are visible to the right as well. A well-defined half-moon shaped glare spot is visible. 'Zooming out' to 15mm reveals Orion off to the left:

    This was certainly outdoors, shot last week, a panorama of 7 pictures sewed together.

    The weather gives a complete wrong image of how the holiday has been, because we also have seen this:

    Ah, I wondered if there were enough clues to have a landmark solve. But I guess not.

    It's in south east Spain, the village in front is probably Orba

    More like Parcent :wink:

    Let's face it - it was a sheer luck. But its is exactly kind of the road I would take being in the area.

    Couldn't see the comet, but these were a nice alternative:

    Not the greatest quality but I caught it. Dulles Airport is about 15 miles due west of here - hence the aircraft flybys.
    Yay, my first comet! :smile:

    The weather is getting nicer- here's the result of a few days observing M51 during 'below average' seeing conditions:

    Total integration time = 1.75 hours, each frame was typically 20 s ISO 3200.

    I was able to image 5 moons of Saturn- these images were taken 24 hours apart:

    I almost threw this one out, but it's actually a lucky shot:

    Both the windmill blade and support post are parallel with walkways, which helps lead the eye around the whole image.
