Interesting post Jeremy! Well observationally it was very good for me. We had a splendid Venus elongation and I got over 60 drawings (and the Section elongation report is waiting a slot in the Journal!) Comet Neowise was a joy, quite wonderful to see that visually in the skies with the naked eye. I have now 102 drawings of Mars- the spring months were exceptionally clear and although we’ve had a lot of cloud and rain in October and November, when it was clear the seeing has been excellent.
Finally there have been my variables I have been following- SS Cygni as you know has been behaving very strangely. Now we have the nova in Perseus which I have been following. Two days ago I got a drawing of Einstein crater on the western limb of the Moon- my first view of the formation. So all in, as I’ve been at home more I’ve done a lot more observing this year! I feel I have done much more astronomy than I would normally do and the 12” Newtonian which I got last year for my 40th birthday has greatly extended what I can do!
Let us hope for a healthier 2021 and I’m sure we all look forward to going to live BAA events again and having a drink in the pub afterwards!
