I’ll be camping up in the mountains of southeast
until late next week – hot and dry desert country. Oregon
A buddy of mine built a 18 inch (45.7cm) Dobsonian reflector telescope and we’re heading to the clear air and dark skies of
. We'll also be stopping for some fossil hunting along the way (it's a 12 hour drive from Seattle so we're making it a two day trip each way). Steens Mountain
When viewing galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters I’ll (of course) also watch for rifters being flown with reckless abandon …
I'll be back on Friday August 5th if I manage to avoid the rattlesnakes and coyotes.
