Quote:I have a nice park next to me here in Boston and often thought it would be great to set up and show people Saturn, the moon or even Jupiter. However like every human I have concerns about being out there with my equipment and being a victim of some unfortunate incident.So I am wondering.... Do any of you do outreach in the city? And if so are there some tips you can give someone who is looking to " maybe" do something like this? And should I not be so paranoid?Perhaps having my wife and 2 small dogs accompany me might be a good idea? The park is fairly well traveled and has lighting but parks and city and night usually don't go well together. In theory that is....What do you think?

Quote:Daniel, tonight (10/20) is the NHAS Sidewalk Astronomy night in Portsmouth, NH. We are in Market Square as Ted mentioned earlier, I'll be there with my C9.25 as will a few more club members. If you're not busy tonight drop by and say hi and see how fun it is to do astronomy from "downtown".
