Please be prepared for the evening by dressing warmly, in layers so you can regulate your body temperature as necessary. Take a toque, fingerless gloves, and hand warmers. It can get chilly standing around at night.

    Do you need my scope? If so, is there parking close to the observing field? Is there anything in particular that the attendees are hoping to observe on Wednesday evening? (ie will a 4" refractor be adequate, or is my 10" more appropriate?)
    Fingers crossed for clear skies!!!!
