Once again, Mars was the only object observed tonight. It remains spectacular when the seeing is right, showing lots of detail. The image at the right shows the portion of Mars facing us between 9 and 12 approximately.

Before we opened, I spent some time poking into the workings of the big scope, to no avail. We still aren't tracking properly, and every minute or two I had to nudge the scope along to follow the planet.

We had another wonderful, generous crowd again on a Friday night.

I've had a few people and now both in person and in email how our friend Les is doing. I'm happy to say that he is amazing the medical community with the speed of his recovery.
