    Mercury prominent now just to the right of the crescent moon!

    Last evening (5/28 about 9:25 pm) a close conjunction of Venus and Mercury was visible in the NW.  A nice image was obtained using the Starblast 4.5 in. telescope with the Orion 6.3 mpixel camera.  I added the Telrad inner circle (diameter 0.5 degree) for a reference.

    Does anyone have plans for this weekend.  Both nights are expected to be clear, just hot and humid.  I plan on setting up out here in Oronoco but would consider Eagle Bluff or Root River if others are going out.

    I’d be interested in a Saturday night outing at EB or RR.

    I like the RR idea.  I’ll try to make it.

    Eagle Bluff is available this Saturday night and the weather looks good-cooler for at least one day! Dean says he will bring a case of Spring Grove pop. 🙂
