What a fantastic class this was!!
Many thanks to Jim and Chuck Jagow for leading the way by figuring out what materials we needed, buying them, showing us what to do and fixing mistakes along the way. All we had to do was show up with our scope, everything else was there waiting for us. What a great opportunity for club members, especially newer ones like myself. For the low, low price of $19 we all have now doubled our potential astronomy time with daytime viewing of our nearest star.
Plus it was a heck of a lot of fun. We all had a great time talking astronomy, checking out gear and helping each other out along the way. As a bonus, Mr. Alcor, Bill Mclean, stopped by, and yes, he had cookies.
I had to leave for awhile to see my daughter swim. No problem as Courtney was so kind to fill me in on what I missed when I got back and even helped make up the lost time by helping me do some cutting and pasting. Thanks also to Bob for lots of miscellaneous help & advice as well.
And don't let me forget to thank Jim for being such a great host. We had food, drinks, tools, power, supplies, you name it. In fact, between Jim, Chuck and Bob B. we had every tool you can imagine.
Thanks again, guys!
