Moonlit Posted May 17 Share Posted May 17 As I realized my interest and began observing the skies in earnest late last September I was awestruck, and never gave a thought to the fact that there are in fact no dark skies where I live between the middle of May and late August, because I live at 60 deg N. Right now it's been a month since I used either of my telescopes, though I have had good nights with binoculars and the bigger star clusters. Summer solstice is still more than a month away and I'm dreading the long wait until I can actually see a black sky again. Even Orion has hidden itself! On the other hand it is the season for motorbiking, fishing and being outdoors so I'll find stuff to do in the evenings, it's just the revelation that I just can't expect to be able to see faint deep sky objects whenever I want that gets me down. Do you have any specific hobbies that you alternate with stargazing? Which are they? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
