I totally agree with you, Paul. 
The Irish weather loves to kill our favourite hobby. 

Right now I'm listening to some sublime singing by a renaissance composer called Thomas Weelkes (1576-1623). 

But wouldn't it be so sublime to be out under the stars with our scopes or binoculars?

We had clear skies last Tuesday (4th) but I was visiting my brother. I eyeballed a 2 day old Moon though. 

Can I take it you cannot do any observing at home, Paul - due to severe light pollution?

Aubrey.

I can, and do, observe from the garden.  I have to erect screens to block out the worst of the street lights.  There are nights of better seeing, rare though they are, which help.  When I don't have to get up for work the next morning, I find after midnight to provide better seeing.
