Thanks for sharing this experience with the rest of us. I would have loved to make it but I am far, far away in Miami, Fl. This was the next best thing to being there. Glad that you all had a good time and good seeing conditions.

I forwarded photos of our observing session to Unitron staff members, present and past, to include Peter Indrigo, John Coyle, and Dr Jim Mullaney. Their comments back:

"Hi Dave,

"I agree.We needed something like this years ago. Thank you. John"

 

"Thanks Dave - totally awesome! - Jim"

Hey Dave.   Next year, move the date so it is not so close to NEAF.   I will definitely come next year.

I don't know about you guys, but I keep looking at these photos and still can't believe I (we) had an opportunity to spend some time behind the EP of one of these beautiful scopes.  Can't wait for next year!

Directed here by Dave's link in his recent History post.  Just reread this one.

 

What a night!
