My friend Brie Plucknette took some great photos of the first Second Friday Star Party this past weekend, one of which was on the front page of the Finger Lakes Times, above the fold even! Brie sent me two images to share with you, both of which provide a sense of what it was like to be at the event. You can learn more about Brie’s awesome photography at www.gabrielleplucknette.com.
That’s me above and my trust 6″ f7.5 off-axis reflector. As I’ll describe in an upcoming post, a 6″ reflector similar to this scope is one of the best starter scopes out there. (I’ve been using a 6″ for almost 10 years, so I guess I’m just starting, too!)
