HI All,

Come on out and share views with the always appreciative community members on Cerrillos and the Highway 14 corridor.

I plan to be setting up about 7PM.

Who can join me?

Peter --------------  Sorry.  As you know, I will be in Utah on the 20th.  Otherwise, I would be there with bells on, or rather with a red flashlight on.

Thanks for the consideration, Peter. Just FYI, that limitation no longer
exists.

We normally do this in October, no? Is there plans for one then?

So do we only have two scopes so far? I'm hesitant to invite folks to
drive up from ABQ for that.

Hi Brad be great to have you. Thanks to all for your responses thus far. This event is ON no matter how few or how many (lots please) scopes we have.

Please all join us if you can make it!

This from the same John Bau who quit astronomy for a year.  My schedule is a bit weird right now.  I think I may be available but not absolutely until Friday.

That was a cheap shot. You know why that happened.

I hope you can make it.

Yes, I do, sir.  I understand, but it was just too easy.

I'd love to help out with this one, but Fridays are always booked for me. It would be great to connect with you all again before my wife and I move to San Francisco in late November. She will start her position with the National Park Service's Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) program on Dec 1. Too good an opportunity for us to pass up. I'll miss New Mexican skies, but will be back often and hope to get some viewing in with you all before I go.

That said, I have the club's 8" dobsonian "Frankenscope." It needs some love—focuser knob threading slips, mount's swivel washers and pin are loose, a dusty mirror, etc. I'd love to get it back into rotation if someone can give it a good home. Peter and Francois have dibs as it's mostly made of their parts, but message me directly if interested.

All the best, and the darkest of skies,

I can take it back (I suppose it is the same one I gave ages ago) if no one has a burning desire to get it and fix it.

Hate to lose you, Steven, but your wife's good job is way too good to pass up.  I think I gave an 8" culvert tube to the college out on the south end a few years ago.  I used to love San Fran, but it is very expensive and the gutters downtown at night were full of crackheads last time I was there.
You know the El Dorado group is going to be out at Pecos Monument on Saturday. I don't know if you need to get on the list, first.
