Observing the space from the roof-light

Good evening everybody,

I spent the Saturday night with some friends in my roof observatory, looking at the Moon and Jupiter as they rised at approx. 01:30 CEST. It was an amazing view looking both of them even without a telescope. Till that moment, the dark night sky was excellent for observing deep sky objects like NGC7662 (the blue snowball planetary nebula), NGC663, M103, M29, and M27. NGC281 and the Cirrus nebula NGC6960 were almost invisible even with 21 cm aperture. Two nights ago ;-) I observed M13, M5, M12 and IC4665 using a small FS-60C refractor from my backyard.
