The 2017 Golden State Star Party was held from June 21 through June 25 in Adin, CA at the Frosty Acres Ranch.  The T-shirt is themed for the great eclipse, sans cow jokes.

How to Collimate the ES Mak Newt

A quick video taken at the Golden State Star Party 2017 for the benefit of my niece, Rebecca.

Thanks go to the Explore Scientific rep who was on-site to describe the process for the maksutov newtonian scope.

Planning targets for GSSP 2017

I finally loaded CCDNavigator and see these targets for GSSP as ordered by transit times.  This is a rough estimate based on Menlo Park coordinates.

I will also shoot Acros, E200, and some panoramic slides.
