We hitched up the trailer and made a trip out West this past May. We visited The Badlands in S. Dakota, Yellowstone in Wyoming, Mesa Verde in Colorado, and stayed with friends in Magdalena, N. Mexico. And the Questar 3.5 went with us.
It is dark out there! The springtime weather did not cooperate (clouds during the new moon and 9” of snow at the campground in West Yellowstone - no travel issues though. The roads were clear by lunch) Clear skies at Mesa Verde but a nearly full moon limited targets to carbon stars (UX Dra and T Lyr), doubles (Double Double, Algeiba), and color contrasting doubles(95 Her and Rasalgethi). And I did spend some time on Luna.
Stargazing was secondary this trip. But we’re going back…. 👽

Where have you taken your Questar?
