The moon has been sighted!

Well, I’ve finally managed to get a glance at the moon through the telescope!  It’s not rising very high at the moment, so I had to view it from inside the house through the sitting room window.  It was shortly after teatime, so still very light, but I was able to make out craters etc. which was ace!  Viewed it through the NexImage on the laptop (an loan from dad!) and it looked fantastic.  Only problem is that it’s very windy today and partially cloudy, so it kept disappearing behind clouds.  I stupidly decided to wait until it got darker before taking a picture, and now it’s too cloudy and the moon is too low (obscured by trees) to see.  A [very frustrating] lesson learned!
