7651Re: [delmarvastargazers] Re: observing report May 4
- May 5 8:18 AMGreat evening at Tuckahoe Sunday night. Carol and Martha
were there. Michael L'Ecuyer came a bit later and was
planning a long night when I left around 12:30.
We admired M13 and Sombrero among others.
No clouds but quite a bit of dew. No wind.
On my sky meter, I read 21.27 mag per squared arc second
around 11:30. That is about as dark as it gets at Tuckahoe.
Superb evening !
