The best January of all time

This last January has been the best since I’ve started observing.
In 12 nights I’ve observed 193 minor planets and 24 comets, with 607 astrometric measures sent to the MPC.
This was primarily due to the weather: an amazing winter with many many days of high pressure. See, for example, the EUMETSAT image of today (February, 7) which shows the high pressure dominion over Europe:

and this 360° panorama from our observatory:

These conditions allow a stable air conditions and very good seeing, often below 2″.
