The telesope and sky orientation at the Model Flying Field East of Carson City went well Sat 2/22 THe 17.5 inch Observatory instrument was thoroughy checked out and given an A+ rating. A new 15 inch privately owned Dob received first light and performance was exceptional. Our encyclopedia galactica was in attendance assisting all to tour the skies as it became dark.
