Some actual observing...

Mostly the weather has been bad and I've been really busy, so I haven't had much time to observe.

However yesterday afternoon the moon was out in the afternoon sky, and could be seen in my home office window. I was able to get a nice view without ever leaving my chair care of my 15x70 binoculars. This morning as I got up before dawn to go to Natz* Jupiter was shining high in the south. Maybe one day this week I will get up to get a good look, as I didn't have a chance to get the binoculars out.

*Natz, is the jewish morning prayers done literally at dawn (IE The first possible moment you can) . I go because there won't be a long sermon to listen to.
