Star Party Etiquette:
As with all star parties, please observe standard star party etiquette. Some tips: try to arrive and setup before dark; use no white light – use red filtered flashlights wherever possible – minimize white light from auto door and dome lights; if you arrive late or plan to leave early, take care to approach and park so your headlights or backup lights do not shine on other participants; if you leave early or must use white light, first give warning so observers or astrophotographers can compensate; please ask before handling other participant’s telescope equipment. Most importantly, be prepared to relax and enjoy good company under the night sky.

    no oak glen for me, to much white light, if weather allows am thinking of cottonwood possibly.

    I’m watching the weather. It doesn’t too promising though. I think I’ll stay home and polish my lenses or something.

    I think I will set this one out at home where it is dry. ☺
