There are at least four items related to Arizona observing in the February issue of Sky & Telescope, two of them to Sunglow Ranch. In his review of the NexStar 11 GPS on page 49, Dennis di Cicco refers to an astrophotography junket to southeastern Arizona with two friends. The two are Canadian Peter Ceravolo and Bostonian Mitch Sayare, who owns Sunglow Ranch. Mitch flies to the ranch in his twin-engine turboprop (a Twin Commander) that is referred to later in the article. On page 72, David Levy recounts an observing session with Gene Lucas and Gerry Rattley as well as a talk he gave to the Phoenix Astronomical Society. The excellent picture of the very old crescent moon seen on page 132 was taken at Sunglow Ranch by Matt BenDaniel, who makes frequent trips from Boston. And I dare to complain about a three-hour drive! A better reproduction at larger scale appears on Matt's page at http://people.ne.mediaone.net/mbendaniel/gallery/astro/earthshine.html Finally, on the same page S&T has published a fine image of NGC 253 by Rich Jacobs. Nice to be back home from holidays in Michigan. My best summary shot of the weather is at http://www.psiaz.com/polakis/deice.jpg. Something you don't have to worry about at Sky Harbor.
