For any first timers we can meet at the Texaco right off the interstate around 6ish. Sunset is at 6:20

Oops. Can’t make this one. Game starts at 7PM…. 🏈
Going to be a gorgeous evening. I spent several hours over the past couple of nights on the back deck here off Valleydale. It was really nice! Low humidity and not a cloud in the sky. Compared views between my 89mm Mak and my 6” Dob on a few carbon and double stars and several of the Fall deep sky beauties. The Mak held its own. Neither one could eke out NGC 891 in Andromeda - a nice one from a darker spot - even after midnight when the area high school stadium lights were all out.
Everyone have a great time!

Normally we’d have a public star party this weekend. But that isn’t possible. So I’m thinking of taking advantage of the weather tomorrow and going up there. The moon will set around 8:30. Shouldn’t be an issue.
Anyone else interested?
