Hello all,

First post here but my wife has been posting a few messages here and there.

We will be there in a month (April 18th - 30th) and I am an amateur astronomer and am wondering how is the night sky there this time of year? Trying to decide what equipment to bring to star hop.

If anyone is interested while I am there I can do a small tour of the starry night. If you meet a short, not-so-fat, bald guy just ask him if he is Astrodude. If it is me then I am always more than happy to share the beauty of the stars.

I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

Even better if you're lucky enough to experience a power failure!

Okay now I am officially excited! laugh

I am pretty sure I am bringing my solar binos, but am still trying to figure what else to bring. If I could I would bring my imaging setup but that is not practical.

Thanks for the info. Anyone else with any info?

Speaking of power failures.....

Do I need to get any special wall transformer to charge my batteries?
