Completely off topic, but as it does involve Tuscon, a bunch of my customers will be there in late October for a National tennis tournament. I don't remember the club that's the headquarters, but anyone that's been there for the Nationals before said that they had a terrific time! The weather at that time should be just about perfect.

Astronomy:

Kitt peak- about an hour out, has day and night programs (not for the advanced observer).
Mount Hopkins- about an hour south on I-19, has striking scenery, visitor's center has a guided tour up the mountain.
Large Binocular Telescope- this is 2 hours out, so it's a bigger deal, and requires reservations.




Actually, it is a 2.5 hour drive to Safford. Then, another hour to hour and a half up Mt Graham to LBT. So, plan well. Thanks
