    Re: Multi-Moon line exercise in 2 parts

    Hi Christian.
    I will wave as we pass Capetown :-) 
    We like to stay south of the Continental Shelf to avoid the big (and rogue) waves that happen down there.  I do find it interesting that we tend to talk about going around Cape Good Hope as it were the southern tip of Africa, which of course it isn't.  I will have to look at the voyage plan to be certain of the latitude, but I believe the track is a good 30-40 miles off of the coast so my southern-most point will be off Cape Agulhas at around 35 degrees South.  At this latitude Acrux is circumpolar, albeit rather low, so there is a slim chance it might happen, although i haven't tried to calculate times and such as of yet.
    We leave early next week, so there will be a black out from me, but hopefully I will be getting some good shots along the way.  The moon is also pretty good for daylight lunars, so those will be on the agenda as well.

    Sorry for hijacking your thread, Jeremy. How far south of the Cape of Good
    Hope will your trip take you? (I was googling Cape Hope...) It must be quite
    far south if you are planning on shooting a lower transit. I should have
    completed your moon exercise by then. I'm in Cape Town.
