Clear - ish last night so had a little look but only with binoculars.
Arcturus was prominent in the west around 10.30 so with the 25x100 binoculars through the living room window M3 became my 1st target. Though the sky was very light I just managed the fuzzy blob - it would have been nice to see more but then we can't have it warm and have dark skies !!!
Inspired I marched into the garden armed with 8x30 binoculars this time. Ophiucus was very prominent in the south and I could make out the main stars but not M10 or M12 but the open cluster IC4665 was an easy spot thanks to its location.
I used to have trouble with the 'coat hanger' but found it easily. Cygnus is almost directly overhead so it is a painful experience but worthwhile.
The last target was the old faithful M13, the Hercules globular, - generally easy to find but these light evenings many subjects become more challenging.
No Perseids - I did look what with the w/e not looking too promising. Just an aeroplane and a satellite on view instead.
There are a few things on view aside from 1st magnitude stars and planets - take a look if the opportunity arises it is always a pleasure!!
Out tonight (22:45 10/08/18) Very clear, I saw 3 Perseids, one very bright right through Cassiopeia, one tiny vertical one in Perseus itself and a faint one through Pegasus, I only had the binoculars, but still manage M31, the triangulum galaxy and M51, plus M13 and also 12 and 14, the Lagoon in Sagittarius, Double cluster, a sattelite called Terra and several Cosmos rocket bodies. Mars of course was prominent.
