    Boy, it was bright out there last night.  You need sunglasses, especially looking at the moon.  Darn near burned my eyes out sighting in on it and looking through the scope.  🙂

    Things were quite washed out.  Caught Orion in his skivvies bathing in the moonlight.  We took a look at Orion nebula, Jupiter and Andromeda.  Not that bright.  I think I did see M32, but didn't look too hard for M110.  Nothing like the other night when they really stood out.  With all the brightness, we decided to look at double stars.  Found quite a few and it was so much fun, we're heading out to Keller again tonight.  Find what we found last night and find some more.  Come on out if you want.
