There are a lot of changes going on this fall time of year. As for baseball, the post-season is upon us. As for morning walks, they are starting to get cooler, and the trees are starting to show a little color. At home, the process of getting warmer clothes closer to hand has begun. And since the season of Lent and my last post has long since passed, it also may be time to prove that the Orlop still has a little life left in it.
The question is, does the blogger still have a little life left in him.
On the astro front, telescope Stella now has a shiny new mount and tripod that unfortunately came requiring a new round of adjustments needed to whip Stella into better shape. This is her post-season too. One of these days soon I hope to post some samples of what a more svelte Stella can provide.
Fewer cloudy nights would sure speed up the process, as would being a little less fumble-fingered in making the needed adjustments.
In keeping with my propensity for tackling projects just beyond my reach, I am undertaking to create a six panel mosaic of the Andromeda Galaxy.
