Hi folks, I haven't abandoned this site. I promise. I've actually been working very heavily on a couple of astro-related projects during my nights and weekends and lunch breaks and whenever I can squeeze in an extra moment. It hasn't left much time for anything else unfortunately, including getting new material posted here. The upside is that a big deadline with one of the projects will be over at the end of June. As soon as I get a couple details checked off, I'll write more about what's been going on with that. And then hopefully get some observations rolling again.
It's new-moon week coming up. Go out and get some dark sky observing in if you can! I'll be indoors for this cycle :'(
