I always find that when i'm wearing gloves i just cant find purchase on anything; anything small and it's on the floor. Those country gloves look darn warm though.

As pointed out in previous posts, depending on where your located, wind chill could be the crucial one to insulate from. Other than that frequent hot drinks and snacks such as nuts / raisons with high calorie intake are good for keeping the core body pretty insulated. Then of course there is the option of a quick run around or a few star jumps around the observation site - just dont knock over any equipment!

My natural, cultivated layer of blubber forms a perfect barrier to the cold. Damson gin while optional is pleasurable and warming.

Cheers,

Steve

also you do not want to exceed what I call CSM (critical sock mass) by putting too many pairs and restricting blood flow to feet, makes them feel colder

It's all high fashion here! Not! I wear thermal long johns and vest, long sleeved top, trousers, fleece,

hat, gloves, UGG boots and a coat that keeps me warm to -10 degrees so I'm nice and warm. It takes me so

long to get ready though that I lose the want to go out sometimes!

0 degrees out tonight. First time this "season" that it's gotten that low. Crunchy grass and sparkly shed roof to boot. Looks lovely by the light of the moon.

What a fashionable lot we are!

I can see Vogue editors and Gock Wan itching to get their hands on us!

Skiing salopettes is what I'll be wearing when it gets really cold.

Had our first fall of snow here in Powys yesterday........

Lol i don't think Vogue would at all be interested in bobble hats, North Face fleeces and coats and fur lined workman's boots. You never know though, we may start a new astronomers fashion.

Thermal base layer (x2 if it's really cold); good quality fleece; sheepskin lined hat; gloves; and a lovely down jacket from the chaps that make them for Rannulph Fiennes (PHD) - I reckoned that Rannulph Fiennes, apart from being a complete nutter, probably knows a thing or two about trying to stay warm.

I'm glad astronomy is done in the dark as we must look a pretty strange bunch in our various outfits :)

I wear a merino wool base layer & Buffalo six shirt. These are really warm.

Then if I'm out longer than half an hour and its well into minus temperatures, I put a North Face down parka over the top.

Hands: Gul helmsman gloves

Legs: Ski trousers with braces from Decathlon

Feet: Hiking boots & wool socks

Head: woollen hat

So far,this lot has kept me warm all the way through to dawn, no matter how cold it gets.
