cleaning priority

Attended the members night at the DDO.

Reviewed the Questar with Tom. Reminded Paul we were still waiting to set the next council meeting date. Met David G over the Beginner's Observing Guide. Met David H, after our long Jupiter light angles email exchange, at last. Plotted with Peter H on recruiting our own minions! Followed-up with Peter R on RASC calendars. Caught up with Lucy.

Enjoyed the talks by Chris, Jim, and Phil.

The big take-away from Jim's talk on cleaning optics was to work on the ones closest to the eye.

The main take-away from Phil's talk is that a barlowed laser collimator is an excellent tool for a Newtonian (albeit expensive).
