From the classroom, to the Universe

Saturn after the Storms in Manila

Its been a rainy week here in Manila, classes and work were suspended because of Juaning and  Kabayan which a few (or a lot?) students enjoyed. I did  also enjoy the “holiday” but that could be my chance to stay up late and do some observations but obviously that type of vacation for a casual amateur astronomer could not enjoy .  😦

I’ve been itching to try and image Saturn for quite some time to test my Philips ToUcam which I acquired through sulit.com  but due to busy schedule and the wet seasons it was all but a plan. Then finally, just right after typhoon left the country,  I was able to get to see stars, moon and planets once again ! Yey! 😀

Seeing conditions are limited greatly by fast moving clouds, strong winds coming from south and Saturn starting set early at around 40degrees above the horizon (9:00 Local Time).
