Well, I have been clouded, winded, rained, and full mooned out for a while.  So I have been studying and preparing.  Still working on Messier Objects with the Infinity 80, planning on doing the Double Star Marathon Objects listed in Astronomy Magazine this last March (but not all on one night) with the Infinity 80, and will start the Astronomy League's Open Cluster Program with my Lightbridge 12.  The Infinity 80 is ready to go, instantly.  The Lightbridge is set up in my observatory, ready to go.

 

The next even possible time is early Sunday morning when the clouds clear, but the moon comes up.  Transparency is supposed to clear up to something reasonable, but the seeing will continue to be bad.  I plan on getting up and checking to see if there is any point in getting out a scope.  If not, I am going to sit down in the observatory and drink hot cocoa!

Even though there has been a few hours with part of the sky open, it has not been that way when I could work on my Messier project.  I am definitely ready for the clouds to clear.  :) 

 

I hope everyone who reads this has a happy holiday season!
