I've just posted my article about the Winter Star Party 2014.

You can find it here: WSP 2014

I hope you enjoy reading it - it has a lot of photos in it.

Just FYI, the two 8" mirrors are still available, as is a 12.5" mirror. See my In Stock Page.

Nice article, Mike. Let's hope we all make it back to WSP, but have less incentive to get out of the northern seats this coming winter!

Clear skies, Alan

Your collimation technique so much improved the performance of even my *BLEEP* little scope that I had to thank you: thanks VERY much for explaining the method to us so well. Now i have my eye fixed firmly on one of those Sweet Sixteens...

What a great read Mike,really fun and informative. Enjoyed all of those pics as well.Would have been nice reading it in S&T or Astronomy.Your comments about the cold compared to what we enjoy down here reminds me all over again why I left Indiana and moved to southern Florida.All things being equal,beer is good by a fireplace but so much better by the palms as the dolphins swim by :-)
