Forty-four rides, from February through August, then I couldn’t continue.

12/1/03- Oberwerk 11×70 binoculars– first light: Pleiades– wow! At least 25 stars. Cassiopeia nice. Andromeda Galaxy M31 a bit disappointing, probably due to waxing gibbous moon. Moon itself very crisp & dramatic @ terminator.
