we helped Bren

Bren dropped in for dinner and some observing. She had told me over the phone that she was going to bring her log book and make notes (as we prescribed in the NOVA course). All right.

She arrived while I was helping Dave. Dinner conversation was interesting...

Afterwards, Ian and I set up the orange tube C8 on the observing pad. We took the Telrad from the C14. As I had brought my eyepiece case, I loaned her my vintage Celestron 26mm Plössl. Ian walked her through how to run the SCT on fork mount. I was busy with the occultation stuff.

Just before 10:30 PM, she left for her cottage.

She was thrilled to see Saturn.
