Great stuff! Now is the perfect time of year for sky viewing - pity you can't do it without freezing solid though. :-)

Long Johns, tracksuit pants and a pair of jeans. Long sleeve vest, T-shirt, 3 jackets. Wool lined hat with ear flaps and one of the jackets got a hoody that goes over the hat. Gloves and 2 pairs of socks in hiking boots. You sit out there for 4 to 5 hours, so it still gets cold.

But it is warming up a bit lately. At least around these joburg parts.

We haven't had much in the wy of winter yet, though I'm told there's a cold front on its way. After the summer we had, I was hoping for positively arctic weather, but alas, global warming seems to have kicked in now.

He looks slightly older than his early thirties; I must assume he has managed to avoid the wrath of established interests thus far.

Sitting through the cold the last few nights. M16, M17 and the Cat's Paw nebulas. The last one did not come out well and need more data I think. Actually, all of them will do well with more. I will work on that tonight if the wind is not too strong.
