The Tikkun is long and you need to finish by Alos. However many try to finish about 30 minutes before alos hashachar to be able to go to the mikvah. That doesnt leave enough time to finish everything. Many people who read the Tikkun and finish in time is because they skip the mishnayos and for good reasons.
1. In the Zohar the mishnayos part is not mentioned it was added much later.
2. To be yotzi limmud hatorah in Torah shebaal Peh one needs to know what the mishna is saying and most people dont know most of those mishnas without reading a perush.
So the good news is that this year I will finish in time IYH because I wont be doing the mishnayos part! I hope this is helpful.May 14, 2013 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #953153147Participant
So the good news is that this year I will finish in time IYH because Simply because this is the longest Shovu’os nite you shall ever experience in your life, since the last time Shovu’os came out this early was 1899, and the enxt time shall not be until 2089 after which it shall never transpire again so early.May 16, 2013 9:54 am at 9:54 am #953154Shraga18Participant
I was told a few days ago that the Chasam Sofer used to say the Tikkun, and he would not finish it by Alos, so he would just finish it during the day.May 17, 2013 3:23 am at 3:23 am #953155YW Moderator-42Moderator

YW Moderator-42:- This year, Australia experienced the shortest Shovu’os nite since 1899, and won’t have such a short Shovu’os nite again until 2089, after which it shall never occur again.May 17, 2013 5:41 am at 5:41 am #953157☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
The way to experience the longest possible Shavuos night would be to be on an airplane rapidly traveling in a westerly direction.May 17, 2013 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #953158writersoulParticipant
In which case you’d be mechallel yom tov, so…
Of course, if you wanted to have the longest PURIM night, then that would lend a whole new meaning to party limo.
