It is now late February, and the clouds have been relentless in giving us more snow. Clear skies are not common at this latitude during winter and spring. In fact, Northern Ohio does not have good weather much, but in the early Summer the viewing is not bad. Late Summer brings a lot of humidity which results in haze.
I am waiting for late March to bring the telescopes out of storage and start observing again with my new LX75 SN-10 Schmidt-Newtonian. It will include a good equatorial mount/drive and CCD imager, and includes autostar remote control software. I am building an automated system that will be controlled via workstation.
