We're back

Despite patchy cloud, we’re just about ready to start observing on night 4. Probably thanks to that low cloud, it was a spectacular sunset over the neighbouring mountains.

 At a first glance the seeing looks reasonable, and we’ve already selected our first galaxy.The main aim for tonight is to fill in our collection of elliptical/spiral pairs; we’ve noticed we’ve done almost twice as many spiral/spiral pairs and we’d like to have an even distribution. I think this is just because spiral/spiral pairs look nicer, and in the early hours of the morning a nice image to share on the blog is a strong incentive during the cut and thrust of target selection. More shortly.
