Can I bring along an "assistant"? I have an elderly frind who can't
drive at night, and thought this would be a good one to bring her along to.

Dear all who might be as confused as I was, below is the information:

 

https://sfct.org/event/star-gazing-party-2/?instance_id=350

 

You buy the $50 ticket online. Maybe you are invited if you bring a telescope, I have no idea. The website states that it starts at 6:30pm

Hi F-M super info.

Nice to see what the is being shared for attendees.

Good to know. 

This thread is CALL FOR SCOPES. Volunteers are not expected to buy in advance. 

Similar to events past out by the Cowboy Shack.

A worthy cause, so I will do this one. If you have too many, you may drop me.

We - me and my contact at the trust have discussed weather and alternate dates already.

They are the lead on this event. When I get an update, I will let you all know the plan.

Probably not a lot of frying will happen, outdoors anyway. They upped
the chance of rain to 80%.

Still too far out to say for sure

My look at weather.com today says AM and into mid day 80% tapering off toward evening with partly cloudy skies possible.

All subject to change. The nature of the beast. 

Like I said earlier, I will get you all an update re: SFCT plans when I know more

Trust says "on like Donkey Kong"

OK not it really, but they are going forward with the event.

Food, music, storytelling, and stargazing possible if weather cooperates. Bring a scope be ready to share views.

If clouds skunk us, you will still have a nice evening out with great people, some yummy treats and happy tunes.

AP is a completely different beast than visual...it's a game about stability and overcoming noise.  It's also a very expensive game to do if you want to do it halfway decently!

So I thought I'd check here to see if anyone has relevant gear that is collecting dust etc which would help save my wallet from shedding too many tears.

I'm not tied to any specific piece of equipment but  generally speaking, am aiming for the wide field small APO refractor side of things (think 60-80mm f/6ish...I mean, the RASA8 would be a fantastic way to go too, but I fear that very good deals to go that direction are non-existent at this time), with a GEM (something along the lines of a CGEMII or EQ6-R).  Guiding and imaging cameras is open ended and of interest, but I plan on using my DSLR at first since it is budget friendly and already available.

Please email me directly if you might have something you wish to get rid of that might be of interest to me.

Dewey conditions aside, it was a great evening, very intelligent and
enthusiastic attendees.
