To say I am jealous of some of your observing locations would be an understatement.

Hope to catch up with you one day and share a beer

Re: next chapter.......

Right, i am so stoaked, at getting to OZ next month!

Be taking a good hard look at Coonabarabran and my next
visit, (hopefully 'round Aug. '08) i'll be looking at Alice....

Kinda like The Alice, just because it's further North. i would
like to see as much of the Milky Way as i can!

Re: your observing locations

Man, where do i start......

From the Pyramids of Egypt, to the Tibetan Plateau,
to 12,500 ft. in the Andes mountains on the shores
of Lake Titicaca. My Anza observatory/retreat for 17
years, where i could see the dome of Palomar's 200 inch
from my kitchen window. And now making observations
from Mauna Kea's 13,700 foot peak on a regular basis!

After that, all i can say is -15 to -25 is the best! Just
gotta find the right place, and that'll be it, NO MORE
