Rockland Astronomy Summer Star Party

Description

Those attending the 2018 RAC SSP have been rained out since Saturday, August 11th and the forecast isn't looking very good for the remainder of the event.

We have a nice field of scopes all covered up ... just waiting to get a break.

On Wednesday, August 15th the rain finally broke and the skies cleared for two hours between 10:00pm and midnight. I managed to snag 72 minutes of integration time. Thursday, August 16th was a very good evening comparably with very good seeing and average transparency. Integration time was profitable with over 240 minutes captured.

The grand scope uncovering after a week of solid rain. Getting ready for the night of Thursday, August 16th...as the skies began to clear up nicely.
