Got two pretty good shots, mount is definitely tracking, REALLY tracking. Shooting at F10 on an 11 inch Edge HD SCT. Forecast to have clearest skies ever for a few days. So last night I didn't go out with the boys in liue of telescope time, and what happens? Fog. Thick gnarly fog that kept me out for six months last year. Unreal if I finally, after a year of tribulation with the CGE pro, finally come out of the woods and am in fact tracking like a stud, and all of a sudden boom, shut down again.

Trevor is going through a similar experience in Hawaii, weather patterns are all strange. California has had a few years here and there of bad fog, but in the last two years it's been six month fog cover everynight, which is highly abnormal. If it hapens again this year then who knows, maybe I'll go cry or something as my new setup is finally working after all this time and I'm out of commission. Super bummer.

Feel ya Trevor, it migth be my turn again to be out of the game against my will.
