    Fun outing, Mark!

    Shelley will sit out when it is warm and count meteors with me or catch a lunar eclipse. Otherwise, too many spiders.

    Well...what do you know?
    We woke up this morning to find 5 inches of very white snow surrounding us in the woods.
    Finally.
    I will have to be content with observing the birds and squirrels at the feeder.
    Later today Bonnie and I will walk through our woods in the virgin snow, but I believe it is going to be a while before we get out to the dark site again with the telescope.
    Such it is supposed to be in January... :-)
    Cheers

    This sounds like a great deal of fun JG. I have never done skies on the snow.
    My uncle who is 83 has continued this activity even to this day in the western mountains here and in the Eastern ranges as well. I have only been on water skies, but even that has been many many years ago.

    I am glad you have been able to have this fun JG. :-)
    Now I think I will go out and have a snowballs war with Bonnie. Or maybe make a big snowman ! :-)

    Hi Mark. It looks like pretty good night out viewing with Bonnie. And, the Doctor 12.5mm eyepiece came through for your you. Thanks for your fun read observing report Mark, and I hope that you get past the current massive snow storms in the plains and mid western states.
