Hopefully second time is a charm...

In case any of you guys missed the Perseids (thank you very much Charlotte) Astronomy.com has a nice time lapse video over a three day period:

Hi:

I'm a new member, just found Atheist Nexus, and very glad to be here. Just completed a new scope using a mirror I have had for a couple of years. Like any other ATM, I love to share it. Info available here.

Thanks for being here!

How nice to find this group! I founded the Southern Oregon Skywatchers in 1993 and have been an avid amateur astronomer for twenty years. Got my chemistry degree at age 44; if my local university had had a degree in astronomy I would have gotten that instead.

Let's not dismiss the bachelor's degree! I got my BS in physics and have been loving my life as a planetarium director for more than 11 years now! It's actually what I wanted to do after college and I can't think of much else I'd rather do.

Richard, that sounds so cool volunteering at the visitor's center on Mauna Kea. My wife & I took a tour of Mauna Kea back in 1998 (hard to believe it's been 11 years!), but I didn't plan our visit to Hawaii very well, because there was a waxing gibbous moon on the night of our tour. The guide stopped halfway down the mountain after the main tour and set up an 8-inch Celestron. Even with the bright moon, it was pretty neat. The official visitor's center was closed the night we were there.
