Tennessee Spring Star Party

Went up to the Tennessee Spring Star Party on Saturday night. It was up at a nice dark sky site in the middle of the state, between Nashville and Knoxville - Fall Creek Falls State Park. Thanks to the Cumberland Astronomical Society for hosting.

I noticed that my 15" f/5.5 was one of the slowest of the big dobsonian telescopes out there. I also noted that the Royce mirror was showing some great contrast. And I'm still surprised that people who have goto mounts really depend on them I think excessively.
