This is a photo of an outing Saturday, October 9, 2010. There were 5 of us there with 6 telescopes set up. From left to right: Mike (seated), Mark, Larry, Jeff, and Dave. The laser is pointed at the star Altair.

A few of us have gotting into imaging the stars, nebula, and galaxies that are out there. We hope you enjoy these images.
