Unfortunately, it seems we are going to have another cloudy winter in the Canary islands. We had many difficulties to run the workshops during October due to Leslie Hurricane slowly crossing in the nearby. Once again the weather forecast predicts some difficulties for next week.

At astroGC we cancel the trips when the weather forecast is not convincing. This way we save our time and the time (and money) of our guests.

Nevertheless, the last few nights were good. The wind is blowing a bit disturbing the observation of planets but the sky is very clear (and moonless). This are excellent conditions for observing deep sky objects. Andromeda galaxy has been fantastic lastly.

When possible, we use our new handmade telescope in the trips. This is a perfect telescope for observing the deep sky. This picture has been taken yesterday night.
