Yes. Both Languages, English and Hungarian.

Mark,

Is the writing inside the atlas in English?

I am awaiting my copy.

Now if I recall Hungarian is totally unique and it's origins are a bit obscure.

Anyways, what a nice little pocket atlas. It is quite thorough. If you have ordered one and not seen it yet I think you will be surprised how good it is. This will be a nice guide at the telescope in a couple of years! Until then I should keep it in it's wrapper.

Funny, the legend has a very good number of symbols for features but when you look at the maps it becomes apparent how little we know. If you look at a USGS Moon map there is a ton of information. On Mars, not so much. There is a lot of ground still to cover though I suspect there may be a detailed geologic map by the end of my days.  Everything is so much harder on Mars than the Moon.

Hey,


Note that I had ordered four copies, so that when only two copies arrived at my home, I sent an request for the missing two copies. I received a quick reply that they break the orders into smaller shipments. Sure enough, a couple of days later, the last two copies arrived. Yes, it is a beautiful atlas to this untrained Mars observer. The beautiful artwork reminds me of Rukl's Moon atlas that is so prized today as well.


Thanks, Mark, for the most excellent suggestion.

Mars addendum

jimcoble2000
 

They have a sense of humor in the book. On the inside it has a Mars green road sign with the white border. You know, what you see coming into a town or a freeway exit. It reads:

Mars (no service)         min 55 758 006                 Emoji
Population 0                 max 401 300 00 km

 an exit arrow in the upper right corner. Funny.

Re: REGIONAL ASTRONOMY EVENTS IN 2021

I really don't remember that fact. I do remember that I had a brand spanking new SBIG camera (first light there) and it would not start up. I mean "right outta the box" at the SP. I called SBIG and you guessed it ...operator error! Also remember that we had clear skies all week and the first night, I was told (very rudely) to leave because I used my green laser to initially align my rig...

Oh well...guess the fact that there was power on the field solved the power question! Thanks

Does anyone here remember the star party that used to take place somewhere west of Fayetteville, NC.

This was very early in my "astronomy years" and I'm trying to figure out how I managed a whole week on battery power running a computer, cameras, goto mount, etc. I don't think I had a generator at the time and I don't remember power on the field. I do remember that they had a few portable hot showers set up on the field and the SP lasted all week...

Any help here? some of you 'carolina guys might remember...

Our outreach events and efforts inspire a lot of kids and their parents to consider amateur astronomy.

I am proud of my granddaughters Samantha (age 18, senior in high school), and Chloe (age 13, in middle school), who are associate members of the BBAA.

Re: REGIONAL ASTRONOMY EVENTS IN 2021

RapidEye
 

Hi Ian,
It died out for a couple of different reasons.
The guy that ran it was a jerk.  His name was John Didlay IIRC.
When they got kicked out of the scout camp, the numbers of attendees plummeted, for a lot of good reasons, mostly, the site sucked.
The scout camp was amazing skies and facilities.  The scouts ran a 24x7 red light canteen for us over the weekend.
There were 2 brothers that ran the registration and took care of all that stuff for John.  They were nice enough and generally made up for John.
One of the brothers died and the other one stopped being involved because of that.  There were a handful of the CHAOS folks that tried to help take over that part of the star party operations, but John got more belligerent and put the CHAOS folks in a bad spot more than once.
That is when Jamie and the CHAOS guys started looking for a new spot and found the Staunton River site.
That was pretty much the nail in MASPs coffin.

Re: REGIONAL ASTRONOMY EVENTS IN 2021

Hi Stu - was that the Mid Atlantic Star Party (MASP) you were thinking of?
It was near Robbins, NC.  I know you attended at  least once, and probably more than that.

For years it was at some scout camps, but after the guy running the star party got in a pissing match with the scouts, he lost access too the beautiful fields there.
It moved to a nearby location that wasn't nearly as dark or as nice and after 3 or 4 yrs, it died out.

They did have power on the field, it was pretty limited and was supposed to be for scopes only.

Hey there...I'am late to the thread but have a question...

Does anyone here remember the star party that used to take place somewhere west of Fayetteville, NC. It was several years ago (maybe 10-12) and I only attended once as I think it was their last year before the supporting club folded. This was very early in my "astronomy years" and I'm trying to figure out how I managed a whole week on battery power running a computer, cameras, goto mount, etc. I don't think I had a generator at the time and I don't remember power on the field. I do remember that they had a few portable hot showers set up on the field and the SP lasted all week...

Any help here? some of you 'carolina guys might remember...

The BBAA does not have the problem of the Delmarva club, thankfully.  Although we have a few of us in our 70s, and some in their 60s, we are blessed with a lot of members in their 30s, 40s, and 50s, and a few teenagers as well.  Those teens will grow up and go off to college, but if they come back to this area they can once again rejoin the club.  If they move away, I hope they will find a local astronomy club near their new location, and get involved.

Our outreach events and efforts inspire a lot of kids and their parents to consider amateur astronomy.

I am proud of my granddaughters Samantha (age 18, senior in high school), and Chloe (age 13, in middle school), who are associate members of the BBAA.

Another granddaughter, Elena, who lives in Goochland, is also interested in astronomy.  Her family is coming down for spring break, and she wants to come to Nightwatch with me.  :-)

Hey Stu, you may be talking about the Mid Atlantic Star Party (MASP). It was held at the boy scout camp near Carthage and then moved to another site nearby  in Robbins. It was a well attended star party. Can't exactly remember why it shut down. I think maybe the original organizer passed away.
