But Mark, after you and Richard left with those 18" cloud buckets, it got much better, good enough to catch all 6 stars in the Trapezium. It was fun using the LX90 again, it had been 8 months since I last used it! Between it and the Genesis SDF I was getting some very nice views. It turned into a fair night and I needed to get out of the house anyway. I'm still suffering CalStar withdrawal.
I turned in at about 3:30 or so, with the head and neck of Leo rising above the eastern hills being my last observation.
I just hoping that New Moon weekend is Da Bomb! "Old School" the "Big Dog" and the dark skies at Plettstone, that my plan, and I'm ready to go right now. :-)
Wherever you TAC'os roam this weekend, have fun...
