Sergio Figuera from Florida has said he may make the trip out !! Wow that would be something all the way from florida.
Steve what the heck did you find? Sounds interesting.
Thomas are you on your way?

Darn Clint! I wish I could but we did SoCal and AZ for our vacation last year and just can't justify it again so soon. Maybe in another year or two. In the meantime, me and my classics will have to stay this side of the Mississippi.

I'd offer mine, but I get that it isn't quite what you meant by "transporter":

Aw man, I wish I was. It would be the adventure of a lifetime. It is WAY higher on my list than WSP or TSP.


Clear skies!

How about June 28th or 29th which will be last quarter. I can also do July 12th or 13th.

Do you think I can bring my Mallincam Extreme? I have it doing amazing things these days, but the monitor is bright.

I have to get my new beast cleaned up and aligned. It's a 12" Meade Classic LX200 coffee grinder. I saw one in 2001 and when this one came up I decided to get it.

Oh, and you may not know but Allie and I had a 25" Obsession with a Galaxy mirror for several years before we moved out here. It was housed in our sky shed observatory and was absolutely amazing.

Sweet! My favorite hike up there too, that 1.5 mile trail from the telescope parking lot to the top of Mt. Pinos is one of the most beautiful hikes in the world. I have not seen any yet but this is supposedly one of the places where the California condors nest or at least, used to.

It was great seeing a few folks last night for the preview CSPAMP. Johnny, Clint, Debbie, Lew, Carla, Ron, Dan, myself and others all made it up. Johnny brought his God-daughter Max, his dog Reef, and his usual positive energy, I had my Tinsely 8", Dan his 3" Clark and 6" AP, and Clint his 4" Tinsley refractor. The seeing was great for about 30 minutes after darkness and then the winds set in and seeing was poor. It was a nice change in that usually the temps drop into the 40's, but last night stayed in the 60's. Myself and Lew left after midnight and encountered a horrible accident 5 miles down the mountain. I guess Lew was one of the first on scene with the occupants still trapped upside down in the vehicle. I hope they all made it ok. After the officers let us through (quite some time), I took the 2 hr drive home thinking about everyone around me being drunk and stupid. Last time I do that drive!

Next up 8/1-8/4. Looking forward to it!

Steve
