This will be our 6th year at this school. The fifth grade is taking astronomy as part of their science curriculum at this time, so the whole class has an overnight on the campus in tents. But this year presents a bit of a twist. I had to scrape frost off my windscreen this morning! Every other year by this time, the kids would be in shorts. I have my clothes packed to change here at work and it includes long underwear! It's supposed to go down to 32°F tonight! The kids are going to have a grand time in those tents. Pictures to follow.

Eeek, do you take the MI250 or do you have some other equipment?

Hey Chris...the 250 is safely nestled in my obs. Here's my way overloaded CG5-GT with a 10" MeadeR at the ready:

It was a great event, as always.
