an excellent start

Went to the first Members Night at the DDO of the near year. Rode up with Grace and Tony. There was a huge turnout. No sign of Manuel though.

The theme was Jupiter. Enjoyed the talks by Stuart, Phil, Jim, and Chris. Everything went very smoothly. Even the transitions between brief presentations were quick and uneventful. I congratulated Stu.

Of course, we were clouded out. It was very damp out. But there was a tour of the dome. I didn't go. I heard the place was soaking, dripping, in the humidity.

While at the observatory, I took the opportunity to scout out the place. Place showed me some of the small rooms that I'd be able to use, if necessary, for the telescope clinic.
