    Didn't stay out too long.  We left a little after 9:30, on the road by 9:45.  Fighting dew on the finder for most of the night.  It was a pretty nice night.  Gerarda came along as she hasn't been along too many times lately.  She loves globs, so we saw quite a few of those.  Vega was visible straight overhead a little after we got there at around 7:35.  Looked at Saturn and Mars at the beginning while waiting for other things to show up.  Also, got Albireo in before 8:00.  It was after 8:00 before we could see much of anything.  After that, quite busy.  What I remember we looked at:  M4, M80, M5, M11, M13, M92, M22, M28, M8, M27, M71, M57, M31, M32, M110, M3, M81, M82, M51, M15, Almach, Perseus Double Cluster, Alcor, Mizar — 10 globs in that bunch. 

    So not too bad for the, wow, last night of summer!  Wow, last night of summer.  Another AGNFA!
