The newest blog post (address under my signature) has our Christmas story and sketches of a portion of the Veil Nebula.

Hope some of you get to observe during some time off. We have snowy conditions right now but a few clear nights are forecast. We only have a few weeks before we make plans to head to a school foundation in the Philippines again, where we will conduct some more training on their 8 inch scope that will include sketching what they can see.

Thank you readers and commenters. We have had mostly cloudy/snowy/frozen rain-filled skies, so no observing during this holiday period.
