Weekend under the stars star party in Foxpark Wyoming

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

This is probably the best site around,at 9200ft and 50 miles from Larimie it is super dark! All 198 people were very friendly and willing to share views all 4 nights I was there.I camped next to a 16 inch Astrosystems and an 18 inch Starmaster with go to.Really nice scopes so I was giving them challenge objects every night.One person let me use his 25 inch Obsession for about an hour once he realized I knew my way around and was an advanced observer.I saw some old friends and made some new ones. I had many people wanting to look through my classic orange C-11 and I gave quite a show.I hunted down extremely tough objects that most thought would be impossible in an 11 inch. This is one star party that I highly recommend.The drive is about 165 miles from Brighton. Take care.Mark Spalding.

Dark Sky Night at Barr Lake

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

So far it look like we might beat the weather for this satruday.

I realy enjoy being out at Barr Lake, it is so much darker, and it fun to hear and sometimes see the wild life to. 

Can’t wait to get the telescope out again….
