I'm going this year for the first time and wondering if any of you CN's are going also?

FWIW, it would help a lot to have a link, or the acronym spelled out.  So I guess googling is in order.

 

Had my SVX080T out last night in the first really clears skies in months. Such a happy time!

 

Thanks.

I was curious, besides bringing your SV scope, are you allowed to bring other scopes, say a C11?

LOL...I'm a newbee also. From what I understand in this e-mail I received : "You can bring other brand telescopes but they will be subject to continuous ridicule."   I say it's only fair as it's a Stellarvue  sponsored even for Stellarvue scope owners.

 

Alex, We come in on the 3rd midday with a trailer. Hopefully I can pick your brain on the ZWO ASI071 - Pro I just bought but have yet to setup.

Looking forward to meeting you guys.  I will be brining a Tak to the party for visual and open to whatever ridicule the gang wants to dish out :)

 

Still finding my way around ASI071 Pro - seems like a good option for no-fuss setup out in the field and should OK for such dark skies with no filters.  One word of caution - take your time cooling it down.  Last night I killed the hour I had to image due to dew building up on the sensor: I had it down to -15C, cooled over 10min, and for the first time it happened.  I'm testing it at home right now to see if dew builds up again (can only get it down to -10C in the house) and hopefully this was a one-time occurrence.  Will go out again tonight to see if happens again at -15/-20, but I'll be sure to set cooling time to at least 20min.
