I'll bring along the 15" Obsession as well to keep my eyeballs busy while the laptop collects imaging data. I'll be trying out my new Round Table observing platform and Walt's Observing Chair for the first time. My wife got me the observing chair for Christmas (best astronomy wife ever) and I've been bummed not to be able to use it yet. I'm pretty excited about both. I might even break down and do the marathon this year....or I might not. Either way I'm looking forward to spending some desert time with a bunch of friends and hope to see a lot of people that I don't get to hang out with much.
Finally, I can't sit around in the desert all day waiting for it to get dark. There'll be the usual excursions to ridiculously uninhabited and jaw droppingly beautiful parts of the desert if anyone wants to join. I anticipate that you'll be able to find my campsite on the far southern end of the airstrip.

Maybe we can get some images of Comet Pannstarrs!! Right now, my plans are to show up for Saturday, walk around and chat for a while.
