I have not been doing any astronomy for about 2 years due to a combination of health and personal issues.

 

But, this fall, I'm back under the stars.  I'm sticking to some of the bigger, brighter classics while I get back into the flow of it all.

If never ceases to amaze that in the 1980's, when I was in high school, an image like this from a ground based observatory was beyond the reach of the best observatories in the world.  Now a fat middle aged guy can outmatch that for fun.  Progress can be a wonderful thing!

A fit, strapping, young racoon thinks you've done quite well upon your return to the dark side! :)
