Still didn't get to test the 905

Yesterday I said:

Perhaps I'll get lucky and we'll have a few hours of dark before the cloud rolls in...
I didn't get lucky. By the time it was dark the sky was totally overcast. I'm not seeing a clear night on the five day Met Office forecast for my area so it looks like I won't get to try the 'scope out for a while yet.

File Under: Bloody British Weather.

I managed about 20mins outside with it on Friday night and, when I get the chance to write it up, I'll post my first impressions on the weblog (I tend not to get near the computer much at weekends).

As for the clouds, as much as I'd love to blame Matt, I've only got myself to blame. Buying a new observing tool always has this effect...
