I got back on Tuesday evening and am just now getting caught up on non-work stuff.
There was no cell coverage there at all, so I was radio silent the whole time. The weather turned out to be a non-factor. When I arrived on site, it was raining pretty steadily. Most people had not set up any gear because the forecast for the first night was poor. As it happened, the first night was much better than we anticipated. A few of us were looking at the clear, dark sky going "Huh. It's too bad we're not set up".
I was able to image all night long for the remaining four nights. The second-to-last night had some clouds obscuring the southern horizon. I was imaging in Cepheus, so it didn't bother me, but most folks were doing early season imaging in the Sagittarius area and it shut them down.
I was telecommuting during the day (well, working, but with no network access), so I really didn't stay out after dark much. Most of the time I was out, I took up phonehome, above, on his gracious offer to use Elvira. Elvira is an AMAZING scope that is probably the best thought-out package that I've ever seen - worthy of its own topic. He also brought along a new toy - an imaging intensifier. We had great fun with it both looking at the sky with no scope at 1x, and pairing it with Elvira.
There were two downsides. I was prepared for one, but not the other. The first one is bugs. There were a *lot* of them. I was able to manage with nightly applications of repellent. The second one is dew. I was ready for this with my optics, but not my footwear. The observing field is a meadow with wild grass that's about 6" tall. Walking around in it got me feet drenched. On the second night, I switched to some wool socks that I brought, which kept my feet warm. But I did not have any waterproof footwear with me.
All in all, it was a great time, with great people and great skies. I'm definitely going back next year and would recommend it to anyone looking for a star party in the Pacific Northwest.
