Start Imaging while the weather is nice.

The weather has been fair lately, although clouds don't need much reason to sit over the observatory it seems.
I hear that the 14" is working very well so I hope to get some images of Mars and Saturn tonight. A Rockland  Astronomy Club member (the NEAF guys) and good friend is visiting me tonight (Friday, June 24) and he wants to see what all my bragging is about. We'll be at the observatory before it gets dark and I will bring my equipment to see how well my new imaging and control program "Backyard Nikon" will perform.
Hopefully I will have some results by Monday... (fingers crossed)
