    Default It's been a long time



    Haven't had my XT10g out since March. Between work and summer time weather here in Florida, I just couldn't find the time. Well, yesterday was a perfect weather day so I took advantage of it. With the time change, I was able to get out sooner and stay out longer. Skies were clear and no wind at all. It was a great stargazing evening. Packed it up about 1am. Almost forgot how enjoyable it was to be out under the stars. Will definitely make more time this winter to get out and do some serious stargazing.

    Congrats! Glad you were finally able to return to the night skies. Yes, gotta love the departure of daylight savings time. I'm finally getting my time-frame and scheduling worked around in the right direction also.
