Well I'm a sucker for sucker holes. I'm still planning on giving it a shot.  Truth be told I've been out every night for the past couple of weeks and need an excuse to get to bed early. Also I need to get out of the house!

Cheers

Well, looks like I'm not going! Weather forecasts at 3 different places are calling for solid clouds, rain everyday with thunderstorms and generally bad weather all week. Even if they're wrong about the rain there will be clouds. Sucker holes don't work with imaging.

Maybe in the spring.....If only they had it last week!

Robert & I were signed up as well but I had to back out. Now it looks like the weather is not going to be favorable. Hey, at ECSP we always said bright clear skies or rain, we'll still have F-U-N!

Gosh, Gabriel and all others. I was so upset with myself for not being able to join you but I'm not feeling well.

Not going to make it tonight.  I’ll try to do some outreach down here though.

It looks like a good night for Skywatch.  Dress apprpriately, as it gets chilly after the sun goes down.

Hello Stu

 

I plan on attending SRSP, looking for how many others from BBAA we should be looking for.

In getting ready for SRSP next week it dawned on me that my main computer that I intended to use at the SP was getting slower & slower over the last couple months. Last week it got so bad that if I told it to do 2 things in fairly rapid succession, it would crash, restart and that means big headaches for an imager. Figuring it was the RAM going bad, I found a stick on Amazon. For only $3 more I got same day delivery. Put it in today and HEY...new computer! The only thing better than this might be clear weather all next week!

Yeah.  I can only stay thru Thursday night and I'm hoping for at least two good back to back nights.  Here's hoping the forecast improves - which it already has some.

Good job on the memory stick - weather not looking so good.
