Chris, maybe you'd like to organize the chain saw duels?Chainsaw duels are good....but maybe yoga karaoke would get everyone fit for a night of viewing? And I'm good for the cocoa bribes....Chris

Quote:I was fogged out after setting up last night. If it's as clear as suggested, I might go out to Rattlesnake Lake tonight, and brave the cold.

Quote:He doesn't have any secondary heat and frost on his secondary twice became a problem. The first time he removed the upper cage, took it into his p/u to warm, then reassembled, recollimated and went back to business. The second time was quite late, so it was his goodnight signal. He got home to Silverdale around 6:30.

Quote:I have not seen such persistent fog in my dozen years here.
Quote:The chalkboard at the Paradise Visitor's Center predicted a high there of 63* and freezing level at 11,500'.
Quote:Great to see that folks got out observing and imaging the last few days. The crazy fog inversion layer in Seattle (and nearby) caused really fantastic transparency in the mountains. The fog blocked out Seattle at Rattlesnake. And no cars ventured there until around 6 AM. I got TONS of data this weekend(only about 13 hours but that is a lot around here) Gives something to process in the coming weeks
