More Information

After eight months of canceled star parties due to inclement weather, this star party was like a celebration of the return of summer and clear skies to Seattle.  The variety of six telescopes featured diverse sizes and types, including a 4" refractor, a 6" Newtonian with Dob mount,  a 12" SCT, and more.   The large crowd of 100 - 150 participants moved excitedly from one telescope to the other, comparing the views offered by different telescopes.  It was difficult to count the exact number of participants because new people were constantly arriving, moving from one telescope to another, and leaving at different times.  It was a magical evening of observing which lasted about three and a half hours.  Telescopes were reluctantly packed away at about 12:30 a.m.
