Sunday, October 6th, my day one at Okie-Tex Star Party (OTSP), holy cow I think over half the registered attendees arrived on Saturday, one day ahead of me. However, as forecast, Saturday night was cloudy with high winds ? exactly why I did not come down. Been there, done that.
Early in the morning the views were fantastic. Bill was putting on a show with his 22 inch Starmaster. We had a superb view of G1, a globular cluster in the Andromeda galaxy. I also had the best view of the horsehead nebula I have ever seen (H-beta filtered). That?s the beauty of astrophotography, once I was on target and tracking I was free to wander around check out everyone else?s stuff.
