Yep,
Clouded out here as well, and to make matters worse I just received a subscription to SLOOH, the robotic telescope in the Canary islands as a birthday present, and guess what? Completely clouded out there as well! Never ever get anything new for astronomy - it guarantees clouds.

Yep!

Same here in North Wales. Baught a new Sky-Watcher Mac/Cass 127 haven't seen a clear dark sky since. The Grott Gremlins are out in force. Am seriously considering taking up water divining sure to get results with all the rain thats about :lol:

Wont need to worry about 10/10 cloud cover then :cry:

Best Regards to all and hope things improve SOON.

Yes, funny old world we live in.
A chap down the road spent a small fortune back
in the 80s going to see a total solar eclipse in the
Pacific. On the day it was cloudy.

My old workmate has been lucky to see two
U.K. total solar eclipse, and he is not interested
in astronomy.
