Hi AJ, The Doney Mtn. Picnic Area is near Wupatki National Monument. Take Hwy 89A north from Flagstaff for about 26 miles--just a couple of miles north of the small community of Antelope Hills--and turn right into the northernmost entrance to Wupatki. Drive about 9.5 miles to the paved entrance (right turn) to the picnic area. We had a nice group there, last night. Lynn Blackburn, Brent & JoAnne Archinal, Max Oelschlaeger, Jeremy Perez and a few others turned out for some fine dark sky observing. The new 18-inch performed well. We used the ArgoNavis/ServoCAT powered Obsession to observe the supernova in NGC 6946, all five members of Stephan's Quintet and nearby NGC 7320C; the 15.2 magnitude central star in M57 and nearby IC 1296. Towards the end of the night, I put the AN in tour mode and observed some open clusters in Cassiopeia. Regards, Bill in Flagstaff: Bill, sounds like some folks at CAS are getting ready for an evening of observing. I just hope the weather holds out for all of us. I haven't been to the Doney Mt Picnic area, is it before or after Hart Prarie Trail?
