TAC Visual / Dinosaur Point is on again for the fall and winter
« Last post by DDK on October 05, 2017, 03:28:05 PM »
Just, I mean just, got a prompt email reply from Ranger Nathan at Five Rivers. Our lock is intact on the gate, yes.

New Moon in October is nicely cooperative, being on Thursday the 19th. The weekend before and after both have friendly moontimes. So weather permitting, we'll be opening up the lot for stargazing. I'm figuring on being there both Saturdays, or Sundays if that works better.

Watch the OI page for announcements, well ahead of the nights we'll be there. Also, if you want to observe at Dinosaur Point on a night that isn't mentioned, send an email to <DinoGatekeepers@yahoogroups.com> and we'll see if a Gatekeeper can make it that night.

Check out the Observing Sites page for Dino for details. It's current. <http://observers.org/index.php/topic,29.0.html>
And do remember you have to get there well before sundown to get in.

Your devoted site liaison,
Jamie

Hey there, Im sorry I missed the Calstar star party, the last one I went to was in 2001 right after 9/11 anyway I am very glad that people are still into this hobby around here.  As to my name, believe it or not I had trouble with people over the phone getting my given name correctly, so I go by my nick name from when I was a kid, it just easier for people for whatever reason. It doesn't make sense to me, but for some reason its easier.  Anyway I go by Rick now but answer to Eric if thats easier for people.

Yes, we were up at MB this summer.

James is indeed around and about. 

(Tho, I’m thinking we should get up to MB more often — it is so close.)

Hello,

Just curious if the Montabello site was still in use for observing, also to find out if James Turley or Ivor Barker are still around in  the local astronomy community? Thanks in advance...

Clear skys,

Eric
