This will be short. I actually got some observing in tonight. I would rate seeing a 3/5. I was able to clearly resolved the northern atmospheric belt on Jupiter.....while other detail faded in and out quickly. Still no southern belt to speak of. Best view at 120x.
Later I took a few minutes to get my first look of the year at M42. It was not too impressive with all the apartment lights in every direction. I was able to resolved the Trapezium into 4 sharp stars, but the nebulosity was all but lost in the lights. Only the very brightest parts were visible. 120x was the best view here as well.
The views aren't very good from my apartment complex, but I was happy just to be looking through a telescope again. It has been months!
