Well I hosted a "star party" for my boys' Cub Scout Pack last night. Shooosh, I was worried. But it all went swimmingly. 1st we did a Powerpoint presentation introducing some basic concepts, followed by Q & A with kids' getting the right answer getting some candy (Milky Ways, StarBursts & Cosmic Brownies....)

After that I showed them some of my equipment (binos, 2 refractors, star charts, books, and a planisphere).

And lo & behold, even thought the forecast was for lousy skies, it cleared up. We hustled the kids out and got them a peek through my Meade LX-200 ACF! We showed them the waxing crescent moon & Mars right below it. Kids really seemed to dig it. I heard a couple of the parents say at the "ohhs, and ahhhs": "I guess I know what you are going to want for Christmas." We also found the North Star and picked out a few constellations. This was followed by Hot chocolate inside, a small wrap-up, and me giving out copies of some pix I took through my scope. Than we had a drawing for two small gifts (a star chart & beginners Astronomy book). After that they were dismissed.

I was really worried but the kids really seemed to like it. I can only hope this will encourage at least some to pursue science as a career.

3rd time out with the new camera. First off is Crater Eratasthones....and Mont appeninus (sp) on the Moon. This was taken from an .avi file, and processed in registax.

Second off is Alberio. This was a .bmp file. Again processed in registax.

Scope: Meade LX200, SCt 10". The Moon was from last night and Alberio is a few weeks old.
