    I am again using the lens that gives, a wide angle.
    
    I had aimed it at the sky, during the daytime, and set the dvd recorder to start recording at
    sunset. I would be sleeping normarly now, and miss the leo sat. So this way, by recording video, I
    can see the sat's:)
    
    Right now orion is in view, and it's so nice:) Can't see one of the brighter stars, as it's
    outside the feild of view, I don't care. I had a satellite pass though. I can see stars down to
    mag 6. There's cloud coming by, but that's because the neirbour's chimney is releasing stuff into
    the air.
    
    Video to appear later, on any sat that happened to pass by.
