unday is my best night for going out. During the week, I’m tired, I’ve got incoming calls from friends, just not good for dragging the scope out. So, yes, it’s Sunday. Yes, it’s clear. Yes, the moon is down. So let’s go scoping.
I cast about as best I could given our downtown location. Picked up the double cluster, tried for Andromeda (no joy) and hunted for a couple of other clusters. We’ve got problems with the lights and a restricted viewing area (the trees) so I did as best I could. Still, I got to use the new StarBound chair (very easily adjustable) which was comfortable. Yet I’m suffering from sciatic nerve pain, which was not.
So, as they said in The Grand Budapest Hotel, “I’d call that a draw.”
