Add that to the weather which is terrible for Astronomy. It is cloudy all the time here and there is a very long rainy season. It is very hard to plan for a night of viewing because the weather is so unpredictable, often your scheduled outings are clouded over. With all these factors, I would say there are maybe less than 10 good nights of clear skies and good seeing in a calandar year. Quite a discouraging environment for anyone wanting to pursue Astronomy as a hobby!
