We finally had a usably clear night for a Friday night's session.

Certainly not the best of conditions, but we got to see a few of the brighter objects,
including Saturn, Mizar, M27, M57, M13, M6 and a few others.  The clouds did move
in as expected, but later than predicted which gave us this opportunity.  A very special
thank you to Rick Burke for setting up his gear while I'm temporarily sidelined.


We'll see you next on August 2, 2013.
