Members Night
Filed under: Astronomy
Posted by: Lloyd @ 1:29 pm

Last night my son Bruce and I went to a Skyscrapers (www.theskyscrapers.org) members night.  This was the first time that I had an opportunity to get to use some on the telescopes at the organization.  Dave Huestis gave us instructions on how to get the 8 1/4″ Alvan Clark ready for viewing.  I was amazed on how easy it was to rotate the roof.  We then went over to the 12″ Meade and were given a quick lesson on how to use that scope.  Jimmy had his TMB 130 on a G-11 and Dan had his 15″ Obsession with his Ethos 13mm. This was about the 5th night in a row that skies were good for observing.
