We stayed Saturday to Thursday and had a great time. Best Sky's I have ever been under. Nailed the HH with my 17.5 dob. Did not expect that, was hoping for the Flame which was relatively easy.

Nice video Joe! I'm in it for 2 or 3 seconds at the 6:12 mark.

Very nice job, Joe. I saw lots of my TSP buddies. I definitely want to make it back there next year. Been too long since I was there.

Received my observing certificate today in the mail. Looks nice. They printed in the wrong names of the lists we were given, though. Two For One and Glob Trot were names of two lists from last year.

I could swear I was seeing the Veil Nebula with naked eyes. Must have been averted imagination...
