I'm packing up and leaving tomorrow after I get through at work. Man, trying to leave your business for a few days is a lot of work, not to mention packing all the astro gear. I hope the weather forecast holds. :fingerscrossed:

I got here yesterday; last night was so-so, but tonight was excellent, although seeing was a bit busy early. The rest of the week does look pretty good, although local forecasters are more optimistic about Tues and less so for Thurs.

What seems to happen here many times is that the afternoon and evening are cloudy, and then it clears substantially later.

I seen that happen there, too. Early in the week the third quarter Moon does come up, Monday about 01:44 and Tuesday not until 02:30. I should leave Wednesday but I'll wait till Thursday if it is clear. I've been deprived of photons for too long so looking forward to seeing some. :grin:

Hi Rusty,

Sorry I didn't say so long when I left this morning. What a nice laid back star party at a great facility. Wish I lived a bit closer and could visit more often.

Hope you're all having another good night. :grin:

Cheers,
