When its cloudy and everything in the sky is blanked out there are occasions when you can point your camera to the heavens.  March 21 2017 around 6am  I think the sky was even angry with itself !

Very nice Dave. With so many late nights in the observatory (when its clear), i miss these beautiful sunrises (except on the really late nights in the observatory when I'm still up).

I always keep a set of fully charged batts Ray, and the 500D handy for occasions like this, they are so short lived at times. My friend Kerryn was saying that it seems like Autumn has been given a miss and we have gone straight into winter.  It was wicked at Wexford Medical Centre yesterday, howling gale and very high chill factor.  By the way my eyes passed all the tests and appears that everything is in good shape, in fact far better than most people of my age.  So much so the Ophthalmologist has extended my visits from 6 monthly to 9 monthly. That image is only 16K. The original CR file is around 7MB !

I agree, summer went straight into winter, no transition. 40 degrees one day, blowing a gale the next.

Good to hear your eyes are doing well. Were you expecting any particular feedback / condition about them?

Yes, Ray.  Last year I was was diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes. Very small just developing, and the Dr wanted to monitor them every 6 months, he will operate when they become "large enough"  ATM their growth is slow.  I also have Glaucoma in the right eye caused by the first tumour, but the pressures are also low being controlled by nightly Ganfort drops.  So each visit always has a ? mark before I see him.  The Eye Clinic is part of the Perth Lions Eye Clinic network.
