Saturday, March 19th, 2016 will be the German Day of Astronomy, initiated by the VdS (Vereinigung der Sternfreunde - "Association of Star-Friends"). With my observatory, I will participate in this outreach activity aswell.
Finally, I managed to automate conversion of the Canon RAW files to jpg and on to AVI video. My first target were the 212 RAW files I took during the total lunar eclipse on September 28th, 2015.
Coming back from Skiing, and after we cleaned up the house and did the loundry,we started a handicraft Saturday afternoon.
During skiing vacation 2016, I decided to go "international" with my web site: I added English as a second language to my blog and with it, to all other pages on this site. Currently, I don't have enought time to translate all the older blog posts and I guess that might never happen. But at least from time to time, I will create also posts in English language.
That way also my friends from the U.S. and other countries can follow along and maybe are motivated to leave some comment in my guest book.
