WOW! I really like that shot, Ivan. Almost as good as the view through your Traveller... Seriously - Outstanding work for those incredible windy conditions. Should have taken a shot of you doing the wind block routine.. grin Thanks for the loan of the 35 Pan...

OK, Ivan. Just let me trim down the truss poles on the Obsession so the DRebel will reach focus. smile I hope this dry(er) trend will hold till the new moon!

Wonderful shot. And congrats on your M31 picture of the day!

Continually amazed at the results with your setup, Jim. And I really appreciate the "dial-up friendly" attachments. Looking forward to the next installment.

Keep up the good work!

IDSSP Report (Friday night / Saturday Morning)

Nice write-up, Joe. I can certainly relate to the "natural" effects of too much coffee and the struggles of sleeping bags while suppressing the "urge". smile But, as you noted, the process makes for a dependable alarm clock - desired or not.

Napping early in the evening and waking in the (hopefully) clear calm before dawn is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the night sky.

Looking forward to the next installment.

Mars storm smaller?

Posted By Jeff Poplin

Nice shots, Ivan.

The dust storm does appear to be spreading out. Looks like you've captured some differences at the southern pole area and just coming into view near the equator.

The weather here (east coast) is going downhill fast.

Keep up the great work - sleep after opposition! smile

Observatory Destroyed...

Posted By Jeff Poplin

Good to know you and family survived OK.

A friend is fond of saying, "If it doesn't kill me, it'll make me stronger!"

Keep looking up (at those dark skies!) and here's hopes for a swift return to normalcy.
