ECSP observing field

Rain, rain and more rain. ECSP, sponsored by Kent Blackwell, ran from Thursday 10/12 to Saturday 10/14, but it was cloudy every night. For those who could stay one more day, Sunday turned out to be the redeeming factor. It was clear, but oh, the result of hitting the dew point was almost as bad as the rain. Caught without a heater, I dewed up in about an hour but everyone else was going strong through about 4 am.

Overall, Kent took good care of us, there was plenty of food and drink, so it turned out to be a great time in spite of Mother Nature’s best efforts to thwart the party.
