Notes

Another moderately clear night with some high cloud providing poor transparency.

Observations

M31 - The Andromeda Galaxy

An easy find as ever, the wide FOV of the 30mm 2" eyepiece

Moon

As pointed out by Pete Lawrence on tSaN I observed L57, Reiner Gamma, a particularly bright (high albedo) swirl in the Oceanus Procellarum. It is thought this may have been caused by an impact on the far side of the Moon which forced material out on the opposite side in line with the magentic field.

With the 25mm Plossl in I also took the opportunity to take a quick image of the moon using eyepiece projection.
