Welcome to the forum jak.

I, for one, would like to see your approximate location in your details, ie suburb or town, so when you tell us your observations, we know where you are.

It seems the Adelaide weather scene / mob is growing rapidly. This means more posts , more reading, more variety. MORE WINGES,,, LOL

For those morning people out there, I highly suggest that you go outside over the coming days to see Comet Lovejoy. This is the comet that recently rounded the sun and was originally expected to crash into the sun but survived the journey.

You will need a unobstructed eastern horizon to see the comet (see this link for sky map http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/attachment_browse.php?a=105723). Best time to go out would be about 3.15am onwards. As twighlight progresses, you should see the tail of the comet rise from the horizon. Check this picture out http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/showpost.php?p=800218&postcount=98

The comet will rise earlier as each day goes by but will progressively fade away so the next week or so is likely the best opportunity. I went out at around 5am this morning but the sky was already too bright to see the comet.

Amazing at that line of storms continually forming and spreading northwards up through central NT. Started in WA spread through SA and is racing northwards now, kinda kool.

Ive got good spot i should be able to view tht comet, by unobstructed how far above the horizon are we talking to be able to see it?

The less obstructed the better. The tail of the comet will likely start to rise above the horizon around 3am and will continue to do so until twilight. You should be able to see it with the naked eye until around 4-4.30am. Binoculars will help. One person who saw it this morning said it looked like a a headlight coming up from the horizon. Each morning will be different but it will rise earlier each morning but slowly fade as well.

Hi folks, I'm an Adelaide native living in North Queensland (Townsville), making the annual trek down to see the family for Christmas. From the checking about I've done, it looks like lows of mid/high teens (ie bleeding cold to me) and highs of up to mid 30's or so (ie good old Adelaide dry baking heat) for the next week or so. Does that about fit?

Yer your about on the money, but christmas day is the one to be happy about, 30 degrees during the day and minimum 20 overnight, that'l mean 23 - 24 degrees for most the of the evening you'll be awake for christmas night.

Oh and can i put an order in for a nice big juicy icecream convective storm... that'l be great! smile

Marcus....absolutely spanking mate! You should post those on Iceinspace astronomy forums. They are the best I've seen so far.

Here are a few from me. Not happy with the first. Focus appears soft. Mind you, it was a 30sec exposure and it was windy. I wasn't using a tripod. Just have the camera on top of my car.

17mm,f/2.8, 30 seconds, ISO 3200
50mm, f/3.2, 20 seconds, ISO 3200

The first image was pretty much maxing out exposure as I was trying to get some ground detail in with it. At f/2.8 my corners are very soft (the one big flaw to my lens), so Ive got others at around f4 and 1600 ISO as it is dramatically sharper but without so much ground detail.

The one below I had to smash the ISO to avoid the stars blurring too much.

I think the hills in the distance actually allowed me to capture the point better as it blocked out more direct light.

The white balance was around 3100k
