Took the TV85 out for an hour or so to take a peek at Jupiter which is now rising out of the muck around 11pm (0300 UTC). Io and Callisto were stacked just to the side of the planet resembling a colon. Conditions were OK: 40°F and calm, 73% humidity. I stuck with the Tele Vue 8-24 click zoom eyepiece this time.
I was hoping to chase some of the Messiers in UMa, but my neck and shoulders are sore as all hell and I just didn't feel like doing the requisite zenith contortions with the Porta mount. I did catch a glimpse of M13 as Hercules rose above the trees; particularly nice widefield 35x views with the 17mm Vixen LVW!
