Outing to Lajoux (Oct 24th)
The weather forecast was quite optimistic this friday Oct. 24th, so together with friends from Orion club and SAG we decided on the last minute to make an observation outing to Lajoux. We brought our respective equipments up to 1300m altitude in the Jura (two ~18" dobsons, a WO refractor and a Nexstar 8") the sky got cloudy at around 21h. The guilty factor? Probably the raising temperature (~6°C at 22h and ~7°C at 23h!), causing the formation of relatively low altitude clouds. At 23h30, we decided to go back home, which was a good decision since on the next morning the cloud layer was still present. Overall, no astro, but good time spent with good friends!
