I think you will like it.  Okie-Tex is my favorite star party and I have been there 18 time if I count correctly.  Drop by and say HI.  Look for our flags.

I met John there two years ago. John, your SkyBox is a really cool setup! 

 

We will be there again this year.  I can hardly wait.  Drop by for a visit.

Has anyone been to larch mountain lately? The local astronomy club stopped recommending it due to shooting, 4 wheeling and partners? Say it ain't so...I used to go there alot, and have new scope a wanted to go back but sounds ruined?

It was a good call going to larch mountain. The night was clear with a bit of moisture/haze, but milky way was clearly visible. Another excellent night with respect to the new kit. Looking at m27 and surrounding field reminded me why I want a 2" 40mm widefied EP. There was one other person group with a couple scopes there, and a guy doing some dslr milky way shots. No guns, 4wheel drivers or wild partners causing trouble. After the final 14mi up the mountain shot, I arrived at my favorite old spot....there was a gate, it was locked! Viewed from the turnaround up top

The KW-RASC's dark sky site is a pretty good spot. Here it is on a somewhat busier than usual evening.
