Stephen, you did a good job last night getting as many objects as you did. Keep it up, next up is the Herschels
Roger, it got down to at LEAST
25.5 degrees. I think it was colder then that, but the thermometer I use only went to 25.5. Let's just say, we all had frost on our equipment and I think everyone agreeded, it was colder this year, compared to last's.
There was also a lot of cooperation between all as well, people having trouble finding an object, people would go over, confirm, show them tips on how to find it. And Mike and Lela's idea of moving Lela's 8 inch scope to the North end of the field is what enabled us to complete the search. Without it, we would have been stuck at 108, instead of successfully completing.
Dennis and I were able to complete 90% of the Double Star list in between the Messier hunt, our goal of getting the Master Observer's certificate is getting closer!!!!
Ray Hazelwood (set up next to me), did a good job of star hopping with his 6 inch Dob, I am not sure exactly how many he got, but he was knocking them out.
It was good to "hear" Bob Shipp again. It reminded me of old times when I heard some pretty interesinting conversation about different subjects coming from Bob, Greg and Roger
Rusty was there, with his motor home and his 2 dogs, Canis Major and Canis Minor
Not sure how many objects Rusty saw, but he was also knocking them out.
We were able to see Omega Centauri play hide and seek between the trees.
All in all, a good night.
