I wish I was the kind of person who was willing to get up at 5:30 in the morning in order to set up the telescope and try to see Orion’s Nebula. In the past week, there were several mornings that the sky was incredibly clear, and Orion was right there throwing ancient gang signs at me … and I was just too darn sleepy to do anything about it.
But I did haul the telescope out a few days ago to do some moon-watching with my son. I snapped a few pics as well, and this one of Tycho Crater was the best of the bunch.

And that’s all I’ve got for now, because I’m going to try to spend the rest of the afternoon making some progress on the book. Wish me luck!
