Sunday 24.6.18

I met Peter at the observatory 11.00pm.He had the intention of photographing the transit of Io over Jupiter with the Meade and I wanted to image Saturn with the ODK.Both targets were low in the sky and the atmosphere unstable so I am not too optimistic for a good outcome from my point of view.Mars became visible later that night and the waxing gibbous moon further brightened the sky. The pointing of the ODK was not so good and later became absolutely haywire.I parked the scope at about 2.30am and closed the dome.I hope to return later this week to have another look at the system.
I need to know who has access to the domes and the record of visits has to be kept up to date.
Driving home there were noctilucent clouds.
