Saturn/Venus Conjuction July 02, 2007

Venus and Saturn were in conjunction this evening on the Western horizon. I set up my private telescope gear, the LX250 10 inch SCT telescope, plus my folding table, three accessory cases with eyepieces and camera gear, a radio and my notebook PC.

It was a lot of work setting it all up, and even more difficult getting all of the camera settings done via software. But it was a pleasant way to spend the evening, especially when three attractive Japanese women stopped by.I slewed the telescope over so they could see Jupiter, and they hummed and hawed and said “waaaa” and “sugoi”, which are expressions of amazement.
