Abstract: 

We will have a great lunar landscape in the view with many important and stunning craters. Jupiter and its moons will also be visible around 20:15. Also I can show our nearest Andromeda Galaxy, Ring Nebula the famous star corpse and a very fine star cluster M13. 

 

It will be a blessed night indeed when we can observe planets (including Venus if we can assemble our equipment well before sunset), star cluster, galaxy and a nebula. What else can we ask from a night sky!

 

Of course all depending on weather.
