Well, perhaps Stellafane will be more normal than has been thought.

There is already a Covid thread in OTO that keeps the Mods busy, so let's not delve into that topic here please.

 Each Stellafane is different. Anyone who has come has memories of the experience. I remember the hot ones and cold ones, the rainy ones and clear ones. The year I met Alan Bean of the 4th Man to walk on the Moon. The year Clyde Tombaugh came. My first when I  was 17 and the telescope I made. won a 1st. My Dad said it looks like I just might have what it take to be engineer like him. In  2019 I won a bag full of Televue eyepiece with only buying  $5 in raffle tickets. First light in the  spectrohelioscope I helped restore.  The years I meet  our Augustus (Zane) and gave him 6" mirror blank that start his path in telescope making.  So yes this year will be different but it doesn't mean it will be bad and maybe just maybe like myself you'll  have memories that will last a life time.  Hope to see you on the hill, mask and all !

Trudging through 4 inches of mud in rain at the crack of dawn, but getting a 4 inch Unitron for $200 and a 70mm fluorite Celestron for $250 for my trouble.  Viewing Stephan's Quintet through a 40 inch dob, looking at the only TeleVue 140mm I've ever seen.
