Linda and I had a chance to observe the Lagoon together while we broadcasted on NSN and did a little sketch lesson. My observation is posted on the blog as shown below my signature. Linda's is on a Caring Bridge site that is linked in the text for the blog.

We still sit amazed at the colors of so many of the southern objects. It reminds me of Linda's reaction the first time she saw the color astro video tool at work on our scope (a friend let us use his on our C8). Her comment was succinct: "Write the check." It still makes me smile, but now that her energy is a little more limited and she still likes to observe, sketching with the astro video tools hooked to the scope are so helpful. Hope you enjoy if you care to look.
