If it stays clear I will definitely have a go. Need to find out times etc. I think I saw something in sky at night mag detailing it though.

Mine is chilling nicely. Its really noisy, my house backs on to a wood and the noise the wind is making through the trees is incredible.

Gone very cloudy here now and the gusts have picked up a bit again.

About 25 mins ago I was centreing on Capella getting it nice as sharp when I saw a very faint white light move fairly fast from top right to middle centre. I quickly look up into that region of the sky but couldn't see anything. About half a min later the same thing happened, appearing to travel on a similar path. Any ideas what I might of saw? Perhaps just 2 very distant planes, or possibly satellites? My Scopes a Skymax 127.

It's most likely to be space junk, small satellites, or even small metorites.

I used to see loads of these through my 16".
