Galaxy Quest Postponed

Dreams of meeting at Galaxy Quest tomorrow (Saturday, May 25, 2019) have been postponed by the now sadly routine predictions of a formidable cloud cover for the coming weekend. This star party is now rescheduled to one week later (Saturday, June 1, 2019), when the skies are *guaranteed* to be clear!

Along with the usual pleasures of observing from this most beautiful of hillsides, Galaxy Quest now sports a new mount that truly must be seen. The Avalon M-Zero EQ/AZ combination mount can be used to hold two telescopes in alt/az mode; but, more intriguingly, it can also hold two telescopes in equatorial mode. In boon for astrophotographers, it tracks all night without requiring a meridian flip. It is equatorial, but is not *German* equatorial. Something so hard to imagine must be simple in use, right? Join us next week, on the clearest night of the year, to help old friends wrap their mind around this puzzling, marvelous new mount!
