Hit up the local auction and did some stargazing this weekend.
I made a nice score on a pretty rare vintage Sansui matched set – an AU-888 (amp) and TU-888 (Tuner).
I hear they never imported these to the US so they’re pretty unusual. So cool !
We had the invasion of the annoying coital racoons last night- Elena spotted them skulking up on the deck and kinda freaked out. We ran them off with floodlights and the pellet gun- and managed to view some of the carbon stars in my little 100 carbon stars project. They include:
SAO 46574 (Hercules)
We also broke out the webcam and got acquainted with the image capture and processing software- our first CCD Lunar Astrophoto.
I believe this is the Cremona crater just left of center.
