Big Ethel Goes to the Dark Site

Last winter sucked. Yes, we got thrown a few bones last fall, at least, but with the coming of winter, the hammer fell again. But even when you are going through times of execrable weather conditions, you do get good nights here and there, and last Saturday out at the club dark site we darned sure got one. However, while it was apparent Saturday morning that a nice evening was on its way, it was also apparent it wouldn’t be perfect. I’ll fess up about another thing too: when you can do pretty good imaging from your backyard, it’s real hard to make yourself drag all the junk to the club site for a couple of hours of work. Yes, conditions are better there than at my suburban home, but not worlds better. I’d been anxious to give my new (to me) 6-inch achromatic refractor, Big Ethel , a chance to show what she could do from that darker site.
