That is about average for most people. If the weather doesn't get in the way, it's work and, especially in summer, I can't stay up too late when I'm working early the next day.

It's a good thing I have a Coronado PST to allow me to see the Sun during daytime and evenings.

Never mind, autumn is coming soon and I'll get out more. I often use my cameras and binoculars but only use my telescope when I have a bit more time.

My blog (below) gives you some idea of what I get up to.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.
