Night-time is when one usually thinks of astronomy and when one has a telescope, Saturn is usually among the favourites. June-July will be a good time to try to find one of the more interesting satellites in the solar system and near Saturn: Iapetus
It and Saturn will be difficult to see in August - low among the trees around the Killarney site but we shall try. Other difficult events may be aurora borealis and the recurring Perseid meteor shower - short nights and moon light as well as weather may spoil our chances. However, if you do not look you will also not see anything either.
How many attempts did I make to capture M31 and a meteor?
