Thank You to Hunts and Reminder about the Panstarrs Event

I want to thank Hunts Photo and Video for having me give a presentation "Photographing Meteors, Stars and Moon" last Sunday evening.  The program was held at their Hanover store and we had 11 people attending.  A good time was had by all.
The photos in this blog are by my grandson Kyle.




I also want to remind everybody that starting Monday evening, April 1 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM and continuing all week, I will be at the Stone Barn of the Allens Pond Massachusetts Audubon Sanctuary, weather permitting, to look for and hopefully photograph the comet Panstarrs as it passes through Andromeda approaching Cassiopeia.
If the weather is going to be wet, I will post on my blog, on Facebook, and on Allens pond Facebook page, if the event is canceled, that night.
