Weekly Digest – October 4, 2020

Long hours at work this past week trying to meet a deadline so not much new reading.   That stated, here are a few links worth checking out:

  • We’ve been having a hell of a time with cabbage moths/worms in the garden:  Epic Gardening, How to Get Rid of Cabbage Worms Organically
  • I’ve been learning a little about celestial navigation for work.  That led me to fun website for amateur astronomers, AstroBackyard.  He’s got a great YouTube channel too.
  • On the theme of astronomy, great views of Jupiter and Saturn in the evening.  I haven’t looked for Mars yet but it’s the brightest it will be until 2028:  Sky and Telescope’s Sky at a Glance.
  • I’m coming to the conclusion that if we ever buy a telescope Celestron’s 5 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain will be one.  (Yes, it’s expensive but when I spec out one with  comparable capability which could “grow with us” the price is at least double.  No, we’re not planning on buying one anytime soon.)
