Quote:It's been a couple of months for me too, and this morning looked just like that pretty picture from NeilMac in Alberta.So I'm doing what any reasonable person would do. I'm buying eyepieces.
Quote:Clear skies,full moon and high winds all night are just pure torcher here this week. Grrr!!! I think I would rather have overcast skies than to see what I can't observe with my telescope!
Quote:On the plus side maybe we'll have clear skies with the new moon period for a change!
