@ . . . . . I haven't been able to observe Mars (i.e. make a drawing with good seeing) since last October. The weather has improved, but it is a bit to windy and gusty these days.
I saw several nice Leonids 2 weeks ago, first from my home on the 16 in the morning (16.6 UT), in Honolulu and was impressed by the number and fireballs (on of mag. -9), then the next night (17 12h-16h UT) I went to the north of the island of Oahu for a "Leonid Party" with the Hawaiian Astronomical Society, but the weather was not as fine as the night before, though the sky was darker and not obstructed by the roof of my apartment... We got a few rain showers...and some nice fireballs (brightest of mag. -8). Fortunately I got a mag.-4 one in Orion on a picture, that I have just put on my web page, and two fainter ones in another shot.
I have at least 1 picture of me with my telescope taken here: I will scan it and either send you a scan or a print as soon as possible.
