Monday evening I trekked up hill to Lansdown carrying my 25kg telescope on my back as there was finally a fairly clear evening. With the extra weight it takes over an hour one way but its doable although my legs and shoulders ached after.

In between enjoying the various items in Sky Tour again, I took a moment to take a few photos of Saturn before getting back to visual observations. Result was fairly good, the telescope and camera equipment are not ideal but works well enough to get something to share.

Hoping in time that I get more used to carrying such weight around on my back so its not as exhausting. Need to save up for better footwear too as my work shoes don’t cut it. Might get some KSO Treks.
