Dear Readers,

It’s been a year since I last posted on this blog.  Lots of things have changed, but I plan to start observing again and posting my experiences here.  I deeply miss the moments spent under the night sky.

Thanks, and a fresh start is in order.

Dear Readers,

You may have noticed that the Tips, Tricks and Tools Page has been removed. The reason for this is that I’m looking to add more material to the page, and I will render the page visible after further construction has completed.

Thanks in advance for your patience.

As always, Thanks for reading and Clear Skies!

Sincerely,

Windsor

Dear Readers,

One year ago I started this web log of my astronomical observations with binoculars, carving a little niche for myself in the big pond of the WordPress blogosphere. Within the past 365 days, I’ve seen amazing sights that were completely novel to me, from interesting asterisms, to glorious constellations, to amazing nebulas.  This was the next step from reading about these celestial objects in books; this was the real thing.  It was that sense of newfound awe at what the universe has to offer, which permitted me to observe in sub-freezing weather in the winter (!) and continues to pull me to observe today.  Even though personally life has changed remarkably, that passion for astronomy still exists.

Despite my current circumstances, being extremely busy with school and such, this blog isn’t dead yet. The next time I observe, I will enter it into this blog and share it with you.

Maybe this site was useful in setting targets for yourself, during your own observing sessions.  It is my hope that you’ve found this blog useful, at least slightly, in jumpstarting your passion for astronomy, or reigniting an old fire.

Thanks for your readership over the past year, I really appreciate it.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,

Windsor

Dear Readers,

School and life in general has been really busy over the past few months, I’m sorry about the lack of posts going up.  Going into December I’ll try my best to observe whenever possible.  The weather is getting really chilly, it’s a La Nina year.

Sincerely,

Windsor

Dear Readers,

I have published a new entry on the Tips, Tricks and Tools page.

This time, I’ve written about finding good books and magazines for learning more about the hobby.  This is one of the most important steps that need to be taken, and will pay great dividends in the future.

To read it, just head on over by clicking on the appropriate tab at the top of the page.

Thanks for your continued support.

Enjoy, and Clear Skies!

Dear Readers,

As you can see on the sidebar on the right, sometime in the past 24 hours this blog surpassed its 1000th reader!

I would just like to say a humbled thank you for your continuous support these past four months in coming back to visit.  I hope that I have inspired someone out there to glance upward on a clear night, and even if it was a slight glance, to just for a moment, reflect on how big and wonderful the “velvet of black studded with diamonds” is.  We are truly lucky to be aware of our place within the great expanse of the universe, in my opinion.  Astronomy is the best way to gain reflective and emotional insight, a window into a sense of awe.  At greater than 1000 hits, we’ve achieved a milestone, albeit a small one.  So, thank you.

In return, I intend to keep posting, and sharing my experiences! =D

Thanks again.
