    ...I used to belong to the Santa Cruz Community Observatory gang for years (it's found uphill from Cabrillo College in Aptos).  I did a lot of astrophotography through my basic 8" Celestron.  The thing about the Santa Cruz area was all the humidity in the air...made it tough.

    And it is a very "cold" pursuit for much of the year.  When it isn't so cold, you have to battle mosquitos for much of the night...

    Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
