Clear skies, good seeing and a dirty great moon to spoil the proceedings

Yep - my sentiments exactly. Not seen the sky since November.
There may have been a very few occasions, but they failed to coincide with my free time

My impression over the last few years is that clear nights are getting less and less frequent. Shifting weather patterns ?

At a show last year I spoke to one exhibitor who observed that "everyone is looking, but nobody is buying".  Maybe they are like me. Everytime I think I'd like to get a new camera/mount/telescope I remind myself how little I seem to be able to use what I have got. And I have an observatory, so set up time isn't an issue.  Then when you do come to use it, something needs fixing ...

Still, the moon gazers were presumably happy last night with their "Red/Blue/SuperMoon"  Once in a blue moon seems to sum up my observing now !
