I fully agree with the current restrictions but am a little irritated that I would be allowed to go angling (not tempted at all) but am now forbidden from setting up my Dob in a dark, muddy and very remote field.
It is very heavy but I am not going to make an argument to the police that I am exercising.
My observing has been quite badly affected by lockdown. I have a yard that is light polluted and affords access to only a very limited part of the sky. Normally I would go to a observing spot closer to the sea, which is much darker and has better sky access, but I have been wary during the stringent lockdown periods – even though it is just myself at the scope.
Of course I am not saying this is significant disruption in the grand scheme of things (before there is a pile-on).
