Nice challenge. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that, despite viewing M22 hundreds of times. When this pesky bright moon disappears I’ll give it a try. Thanks Dave!

I went four-wheeling to a remote beach last weekend that’s a really bad lava road and I pretty much stayed in 3rd gear (in 4WD Low) the whole way down and back up. 5th gear has a .80 overdrive so RPM’s at 75mph will only be about 3500. Still plenty doable and it’s not often I do 75 anyway on an isla...

Thanks Jason; yeah it’s been a lot of fun. It’s hard to drive it with the top down and NOT be smiling ear to ear. Especially when I’m heading to a remote beach. I really like the TJ’s because they have coil spring suspension unlike the earlier CJ’s but they don’t have all the needless electronics li...

I was never really into Jeep’s before moving to Hawaii. I always thought they were owned by right wing military types and with the aerodynamics of a barn, they got terrible mileage. Well, they do get terrible mileage but living in a place with plenty of odd road treks changed my mind so when I got t...

Aloha Johnny, It’s not affecting it much. Maybe right above the horizon but I don’t spend much time observing there anyway. When the volcano first erupted again and there was particulate matter, I did notice hazy skies. But not since then. It doesn’t affect my telescope observing but it does mess up...

I was shocked to see the headline. And even more shocked that they knows of the problem after the first cable had collapsed. What a waste.

Anyone do afocal photography with a smart phone? Night sky photos are incredible with the newer iPhones but for photos through the eyepiece/telescope, planets are always overexposed. Anyone have an app they like?

Cool! Yeah, I can relate about the seeing. We have amazingly dark skies here in Hawaii but sometimes viewing planets at high magnification is tough. DSO’s are great, of course, but planetary viewing was actually much better when I lived in California. Oftentimes, we have too many upper level winds i...

I wish I had the patience for sketching. I did take this terrible photo of Mars the other night though. :lol:

Wow, I haven’t seen Mars this impressive since 2006. What’s odd though is I’m not seeing the polar ice caps, just lots of surface detail (canals anyone? :lol:)

Very impressive though. Anyone else getting amazing views of the red planet during this close approach?
