    Default I've been quiet...



    ...recently. Ever since I bought my scope, in fact. I had a couple of great evenings in May and some real nice views of Saturn... but then darn it if it doesn't get dark until after I'm snuggled up in bed now. I know I ought simply to stay up later but what with early starts for work and the fact that I get tired quickly these days...

    Roll on the dark evenings!

    Yeah, I got out the scope last night about midnight, but the sky was still a little too bright in the north sky. Add all the light pollution and I'm really struggling just to find Polaris.

    I did see a beautiful conjunction between the moon and Jupiter early Sunday morning. Alas, it wasn't through the scope, but with naked eyes as I loaded some angling gear into the car.
