        Thanks Luka.  Still have a long way to go compared to other amateurs!  Here's Saturn taken the same way the same night.

            Yes, a great lunar eclipse montage Mike!  Of course we also have it on our RAC webpage!

              Weather going to be nice Friday and/or Saturday night?  Time to get out somewhere? Eagle Bluff open? 
              Keller or Root River?

                Would love to join ya Jeff at any of those venues!  However I'll be camping/biking near Sparta Wisc. and then going west to the Nebraska Star Party.

                  Sounds like fun Bob.  Hope you have clear skies and a lot of fun out in Nebraska!

                    Thanks Bob! I was blown away when I saw my photo printed!
                    I might be available Friday night, but Saturday for sure. I?d love to get out to Eagle Bluff!
                    I promise not to look at the weather too. 🙂

                        Not sure about the weather.  Could be isolated thunderstorms this evening (Friday) or maybe clear, who knows.  🙂
                        Right now, Saturday may be looking the better of the two, so may hope for that. 
                        If anyone heads out somewhere tonight, let us know… that is, assuming you want company.  🙂

                          Well, looking pretty nice out there to me.  Don't really expect any rain.  I think I will at least set up a scope at home and take a look at Saturn and Jupiter.  Anyone head out, let us know.

                            We?re planning to go to Keller tonight. Hoping for clear skies!

                            Yes, we like company, Jeff!

                              Hey Astromom, that sounds like a good plan.  Glad to have someone make the decision on where to go.  🙂
                              See you tonight then.

                                  Hi AstroMom,  have you had a chance to contact Eagle Bluff about this weekend?  Probably not, still a little early.  🙂
