As it was a nice clear night on Monday I got the old scope out - got some nice views of Jupiter and Saturn (still sends a shiver down my spine). The Milky Way was nice and clear too...
I decided to try and get a good sighting of Andromeda and spent ages trying to sight it up, but eventually... voila there it was. Amazing.
I fitted my barlow lens to get a better view, was trying to centre it again when the nosey old f**t that lives over the back of me decided to turn his halogen PIR lamp on (which shines directly at our back window) to see what I was up to. Yaarrrgh.
By the time my vision has returned, I'd lost Andromeda for good. I'm considering getting my air rifle out before the next clear night to sort out this little problem... I might even shoot his darned light out as well [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]
