So, it's March again. March is sort of important to me in astronomy for a few reasons:
- I purchased my Sky-Watcher Explorer 130M in March 2005.
- I Purchased my Antares 905 in March 2006.
- I started regular solar observing in March 2006.
- I observed my first partial solar eclipse (first since starting to keep observing logs) in March 2006.
Secondly, a week on Saturday, it's the 2nd SPA convention. I'm really looking forward to that. The first one in October 2005 was very enjoyable so I'm expecting this to be a good day out too.
So far it's been a terrible start to the year, other than a couple of brief views of comet McNaught, and a brief session observing the Moon and Saturn, I've hardly been out so far this year. I'm hoping that the next two or three months offer up some good nights before the long days of summer take over.
