to come over. It's the best I've seen the sky clock for quite
awhile. She was going to call the Ranger to say we were coming, but
I don't know if she did.
We probably won't stay much past 11, since I have to get up and go to
work tomorrow and it's a bit of a hike for us. Moon and Venus should
be quite lovely too.
- Thanks to all you guys and ladies that went last night to Tuckahoe!!
It was a very exciting.
I am positive that the remark of the night was:
"What is that thing next to M13?"
Yes, it was the comet Ikeya-Zhang. I was a spectacular sight,
particularly when Joe fit them in the same FOV with his Televue.
The night was so clear that I could some details of the
Sombrero Galaxy with my small 125mm Maktusov. I was able
to resolve a few 11 and 12 Mag. stars in the same FOV.
I hope to meet all of you again on June 7th.
