Went camping at Pinnicals National Park and was finally able to get my new little telescope out under pretty dark skies. Mixed luck but super fun!
Now to practice my alignment with the new mount which took me the better part of an hour or more to setup this time. I want to spend more time imaging and less time fiddling with the telescope to to get it up and running next time. I might have had better images, more images or time to take some pictures of the meteor shower if I had been able to get up and running faster. Next time but so far so good!

There was a partial eclipse today and I managed to get a few images.

Saw 4 or more whales on dawn patrol at Montera. Only managed to get this short video of one or two before suiting up. We paddled out to just about where they were but we didn't see any while we were surfing. When we got out we saw a few about 1/4 mile to the south.

I think this shot is a bit before the full eclipse but it was a bit more clear.
Mars was also at it's closest point to earth so I shot a few pictures of which this came out about the best. Like I said there were lots of light clouds and to top that off the seeing was not very good. I feel lucky I managed to get an image this good. Still waiting for good seeing and a clear night to go back out and try and get a better shot while Mars is still close.
And Jupiter was out so I snapped a few shots if it as well. Not to good. Again due to the poor seeing and light cloud cover mostly.

We took our first trip to Hawaii the last week of March. Linda got a cold the first day in Kauai and 5 days later was feeling better so we tried to do some snorkeling our last day on Kauai. It started off sunny but when we got to the beach the clouds rolled in and the wind kicked up. She only made it about waist deep before realizing she was to sick for the suddenly cold weather. I was already in so I spent about 15min snorkeling and saw a bunch of sea turtles and some other fishes. Lots of other fun pictures to come maybe soonish.
