0 people. For the umpteenth time this winter, weather has forced us to stay at home. @#$%$@*&^%$!!!

I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you about a few changes in the website which may help you.

The weather map has been converted from a rain/snow map to a cloud coverage map. You can reach it directly from the home page button for Weather.

The Telescope Booklet which can be found by following the sequence of Courses&Materials - Scopes Link - Scopes Materials starting on the home page. The two most significant changes are the additions of two appendices which describe telescopes by type (for example what is a Dall-Kirkham or a Ritchey-Chretien telescope) and describe eyepieces (for example what are the differences between a Konig and a Plossl).

The date of the "Black Holes" talk has been moved from Friday March 16th to the following Friday - March 23rd. Les Coleman's schedule would not permit the originally scheduled time. We will hold the "Black Holes" talk from 8 to 9PM rain or shine. Of course, should the weather be dangerous (icy or what have you) the talk will be rescheduled again.

I will be turning my duties at the website to a couple of other folks. Many thanks to them for covering while I am away.

-Les Coleman
