Cool. Thanks for posting the pics. Best I've seen.

Wife interested in astro, too, or just doing you a favor?

Joseph,
She is mildly interested. She will come out from time to time to see the neat stuff, so far she has seen Mars and Orion nebula and was rather impressed.

I almost did not go to NEAF, did not want to drive the 2hrs each way alone but my wife cleared her schedule and came along. She is a good and supporting wife.

Since I am new to the hobby I was not sure of what would be of interest to take pictures of but she just snapped what ever caught her eye.

Hey...... she got my back! I',m the guy on the right in the first picture of your album (standing next to the observatory that my wife is disapointed that I didn't buy).

George,
Cool, I actually took that first picture, that is my wife in the left side of the picture. Hope you had a great time at the NEAF!!!
Sorry I did not get a chance to meet you. Maybe next year we should all wear cloudynights T-shirts to the event so that we could find each other and introduce ourselves.

......I actually took that first picture, ....


A friend asked me if that bag I had in the picture was "full of money". I replied that if it were, the observatory in the picture would be in my backyard right now! :cool:

Glad you had a good time. The first NEAF is always a stunner. One leaves with one's head spinning for days.
