Just a man (Spaced) and his scope. Getting ready for a great night at Goldendale.

Groz, I hope you and Chris find/make a good home in Campbell River. I was in that area several times while boating with my parents in the '60s. We'd usually stay at the little resort straight across the water, April Point. Lots of tidal action around there & lots of fish. Just a lovely area.

Dave, I'm sorry you won't be able to make it but maybe next time. I plan one outing for the June new moon annually and make a point of inviting non-astronomers as well. Last year others stepped up and organized outings for July and August. "Organizing," in our k.i.s.s. world, is simply ordering up a honey bucket and getting the word out. In August the past few years T.A.S. has used the place at the same time for their young person's program; there's enough room for both.

Stacy, thanks for the pix!

I took the tent trailer down there Fri. night. It is just beautiful right now -- lush & green, with lots of wild flowers. It was too hazy for astronomy -- a cricket and coyote kind of night.

@Stacy, awesome pics!
Mike, very generous of you to do this...I am not the axe murdering type (seems that is a requirement ) so I will try to make it if it happens when I am around!

Well, we are a congenial group, so we will accept your denial in that regard. However, I am curious, if you eschew the axe, what is your preferred instrument for the foul deed? I've heard some astronomers who seem dagger oriented (they talk of some knife edge test); some take deadly aim with lightswords like in Star Wars (called lasers). I heard one mutter something about not being able to get that sucker centered in the crosshairs (so I assume he was fond of telescopic rifles). Everyone knows a person enamored of Canons. You have to be careful around people like Robert & Ajay because they incessantly talk about shooting various things. They also conspire to filter things out, which I take for gangster euphemism to "rub out". Me? I used to be a Baader person, but now I am much nicer!

No axe murderers allowed for sure though, so if you're one of those, forget it.





Well I suppose I can set aside my avocation for the weekend - rules and all......

Tom, Don't you hate it when your hobby sets up snooty rules that cramp your style. For example, when I fish I want quick results, but the rules are so prejudiced against using sticks of dynamite...

That's disappointing news, Ajay. I hope to see you later in the year.

Long term forecast does not look promising except for possibly Saturday night. But what do they know? Hoping for an HP cell centered on G-dale.
