    Re: Saturn and Jupiter: one degree separation

    Love the images, Frank!

    And I've been having great (albeit nerdy) fun measuring the convergence every night since Nov 28th.  We have overcast tonight, so will have a gap in the sequence.  Also been measuring Jupiter's elevation at first sight each evening, which of course is a bit more random, but still a nice excuse to use the C&P AH on my Horizon Ultra.

    I donated all my other instruments to the Stanford Rumsey Map Center, but held back my C&P, figuring that I could still have fun with it.  Or maybe Greg Rudzinski might turn up here in the bay area and I could have fun nav-nerding with him! 

    Oh, still have a Plath Coutinho sextant here bec until the lockdown ends, and I am back on campus, I can't hand it over to the library.  But the AH is a nightmare to use, and besides the sextant isn't calibrated, so have left it in its tin box. ;-)
