What a beautiful night it was tonight!
Rolando, Sam, and I had a lot of fun working with Rolando’s 127mm f7.5 and Sam’s 90mm f5.5 refractors.
We saw a lot of objects including the obvious ones such as Saturn, Jupiter, the Moon, and favorites like M51, the Owl Cluster, Albireo, the Ring Nebula, and the Wild Duck and Hercules Clusters.
Lots of other things were visible too such as the Dumbbell Nebula, the Swan Nebula, the Lagoon Nebula, the Trifid Nebula, and a lot of miscellaneous clusters.
We also got a pretty decent view of the Markarian Chain!
Well… I only planned on staying out there until midnight… but 2 AM kinda snuck up on us!
It would be great if the open House at Menke tonight… Saturday night, June 8th… decided to clear up….
