Rosie and I set up 3 telescopes to view the eclipse at Wahweep View, just outside Glen Canyon Recreational Area on Sunday. We set up early Sunday afternoon, showing a "pre-eclipse view" to several dozen visitors and astronomers. We had an 8" LX200 SCT, ("Tina") with a Thousand Oaks Type II filter, our usual 6" F/4.5 yellow solar scope, ("Sunny"), and a 60mm F/9.3 Vixen refractor with Baader film. My sister Kay got a fast lesson on running the refractor and did an excellent job with the public. I counted 156 views through the 8", with dozens more people taking pictures through it with point and shoot cameras and cell phones. I was first to yell out "FIRST CONTACT!" as the fun began. Overall, it was a great experience. I'll be writing an article for the SAC newsletter on the whole weekend. On our way out of Page, stopped at a gas station, a gentleman comes up to the truck and asks if we were set up on Wahweep View during the eclipse. I said yes and he showed me a telephoto shot on his camera he'd taken from Lake Powell. It was the setting Sun, still 70% covered by the Moon, with about a dozen observers and visitors in silhouette. Amazing photo! He agreed to send it to me, and I'm seeking permission to publish it in the newsletter.
