For reasons beyond my control, I am unable to make it to Calstar this year :( I have the Standard Adult registration with Yurt Occupancy. Anyone interested? $40 OBO.

Is this registration still available? I'm thinking of coming down, but likely won't be there until Thursday. Note:  I'm not looking for a reduction in cost due to coming in a day late...  :)

Hey Brad. There were two groups of our co-conspirators near Mitchell. Charlie and Susan Wicks and their dogs and a compact bunch of other people found a lovely place right near Mitchell. And the EBAS gang, Rozerman included, were camping in another spot near there - Mars posted those pictures (you'll remember Marsha Robinson). Both those photo sets are on FB. So it won't kill you, join FB and befriend Charlie and Mars.

I may have to get one of those, sounds good. I will say I have enjoyed the Veil with unfiltered 7x50 binoculars at a dark site, wonderful wide field view.

I've gotten my best view ever of the veil using a DGM NPB filter, on a 18mm in a 20" f/5 Obsession...  this filter passes deep red in addition to o-III and hbeta, so the parts of the veil that photograph as red/pink show up too, while a pure narrowband O-III filter only shows you the parts that photograph as blue-green.

You are probably right, I'm thinking it must not have been an O-III filter, but I thought O-III showed the Veil best? I was impressed with the view.
