One of my biggest problems with writing a blog, other than the fact I keep forgetting they exist because I get caught up in my normal work, is that the number of migraines I’ve had over the past couple of years has increased considerably. This basically means that staring at a computer screen for anything that isn’t necessary just doesn’t happen for weeks at a time! Spot the difference in date between my last astronomy blog post and this one to see what I mean.
Not much has happened yet. I’ve continued reading the entry level books I got out; I’ve wandered out onto moderately dark country roads (a little too close to town) with a pair of cheap binoculars a couple of times and started to recognise a couple of star patterns; I’ve been reading bits of a couple of astronomy magazines when I get time; and I’ve been oogling telescopes of different types and reading up on what actually matters as opposed to what advertisers want us to believe matters.
So not a tremendous amount, but the nights are getting lighter and I have the summer to slowly get up to speed with the intention of starting more seriously late autumn when the nights become darker again. I’ll try to start blogging on more specific matters in the nearish future, as much to create a record to look back on myself as anything else.
