Did you ever have one of those days where nothing goes right for no apparent reason? My whole day started out down the tubes and got worse from there. I have no explanation. First thing this morning I am going to work and I get trapped by a lost school bus for five minutes. Then, while I am going to pick up Friday doughnuts for everyone, I get trapped by a semi-truck backing up on the street. After I get the doughnuts, I am trapped by a large van and an old Lincoln that are so terrified of each other that neither of them can move (neither can I while waiting for this standoff to end).
The rest of the day went equally bad, but I thought (hoped really) that a good night of astrophotography would take the edge off.
Oooooohhhhh, was I soooooooo wrong!
My observatory mount (like the one pictured above) decided that tonight was the night that it was not going to work. After almost a year of perfect operation, it has to pick tonight to be special. Needless to say, after four hours of trying everything, I am giving up.
Maybe tomorrow the gremlins will leave me alone and go pick on someone else (again, hopefully NOT you).
I hope everyone else’s day went better than mine.
