Texas Hash

Latest Report from Eldorado Star Party 2009
So far there have been two great nights. Last night's viewing ended around midnight because of dew :(. Rick and I worked on the ESP observing list (a.k.a. Texas Hash) and snagged 16 out of the 26 items on the list. Some of the favorites of last night were the Blinking Nebula, Saturn Nebula, and some 10-11th magnitude edge on Galaxies. It wasn't easy but not that hard either. ESP allows Go-To and Setting Circles but Rick and I don't any of that on our dob so we do good old fashion star hopping ;)
