January, or was it February, star trails

The amateur astronomers are playing with their light-sabers again!

Above all


With foes ahead, behind us dread,
Beneath the sky shall be our bed,
Until at last our toil be passed,
Our journey done, our errand sped.

We must away! We must away!
We ride before the break of day!

Over The Misty Mountains Cold,
~ J. R. R. Tolkien ~

No snow

January 2014. No snow. Which is rather unpleasant for winter vacation and planned week of skiing by the way. Well, at least there was the sun to make things better.

At the end, it all came back to a lot of walking and wandering around. And of course, the nature is always delightful over there.

It seemed that someone was having fun on the lake. One should now better that on such weather is much clever to bring a kayak instead of ski.

Yesterday there was so much fog in the city, that we hoped it would throttle the light pollution during our observations. When you hope for the best, sometimes, you get the best.

Clear sky, -9 C degrees and couple of telescopes. What else can we ask for?
