[ap-ug] Bad observing conditions!


Roland Christen
 

Well that's right neighborly of you Blush but you've got it even worse up there.

On the other hand, I've been concentrating on 92 Stowaway lenses these past 2 weeks. Hope to get quite a few out for Christmas. Victory hand

Howdy fellow Astronuts,

The satellite image below shows the weather pattern here at my humble observatory in N. Illinois as it has existed now for several weeks. ;^((.

Seems like an endless stream of clouds coming off the Pacific, making landfall in Seattle, then heading overnight to my Prairie observatory next to our AP factory building (red X). Rats! looks like it will continue this way for the next couple of weeks. I can see where I should be located, somewhere in the mountains just east of San Diego. And to think i gave up a possible job there back in the '70s for a job in Northern Illinois. Anyone living there and further east in Arizona, New Mexico - I am super jealous. (plus it's really cold here).

Rats and pattouie!!

You are welcome to become a "snowbird" here in Mohave County, Arizona
Where it is nice and toasty 110–115-degree highs during the day and 90-degree nights in the summer and very low humidity, and perfect weather for observing most of the winter with cool nights and clear Skys.

Yikes!

The hottest I have ever seen here in Waikoloa is 92F and the nights are usually between 65 and 80. I think I'll stick with Hawaii!

Not to mention that I am at 19 degrees North Latitude and can see about 90% of the entire celestial sphere here.

However there IS a lot more humidity here. Although Waikoloa has only received 7.22" of rain for all of 2021, so far.

And the seeing can suck sometimes, depending on the winds.
