Around one week ago I received a message that they were looking for experienced Paypal users to test their process out.

This year I sent four emails to http://bfsp.org. They told me something must be wrong on my end of cyberspace as they only received my last email. It makes me wonder.

Joe sent me the link to the PayPal (experimental) page and it worked great from my end. Now just waiting to hear if it went through on their end.

In the last 1 1/2 weeks 80 spots have been taken. Their twitter says their are only 163 spots left. The paypal shows 182, but I guess the 163 is counting the latest mail in registrations too.

Look for me while you are there....it will be my first major star party as well! We can learn the ropes together! I'll be there with members of my local club and also some other great people I met here on CN.

Can't wait! Really looking forward to this. This weekend I was observing from a fairly dark site and the views were amazing. Black Forest should be even better! It will give my 16" dob a good workout!

Can't wait to see some of the other equipment there too. I want to get ideas on improving my scope.

According to Maxine (and others) on the Cherry Springs Yahoo Group:

Domes at Cherry Springs are all down!

The big Pro Dome is out-of-round and they're not sure if they can fix it, and if they can they plan to move it across the road to house a telescope they just purchased for public programs.

All the clamshells have electrical problems and can't open. They are looking into a way to use a hand crank to open/close them.

The roll-off observatory is OK.

The State Police forced them to just put up a new 90 foot tower near the bathrooms for some sort of emergency communications system (required by post-911 state law). At least there's no lights on it, but there's a larger one with lights that can be seen from the field when the leaves are down during the winter.

Maybe all the CN'ers need to wear name tags with our screen names on 'em!! I'll be there in a khaki Jeep Patriot. Don't know how far from our cars we'll have to park. Going up early because I have to leave late Saturday/early Sunday for work on Sunday.

I got a note from CPAO confirming my registration almost immediately. Check your SPAM box. I also got a note acknowledging my payment from them along with one from paypal.

This communications breakdown is obviously an issue that must be brought up at the star party.

I received an automated acknowledgement from the star party when I registered at http://bfsp.org/on-line-registration-form/ . Also from Paypal when I paid.

I then informed "Nagesh" at nxs7@psu.edu that I had registered and paid, and he replied, saying my name would be added to added to the email list in case there were announcements. I have concluded that I am officially registered.
