I gave a club talk in Sierra Vista this past Friday night, and we stayed at=
 Dave Healy's house.  Dave runs Junk Bond Observatory using a 32" Ritchey-C=
hr=C3=A9tien telescope.  He agreed to take some nighttime images of his obs=
ervatory under the mostly cloudy sky.  By rotating the slit of the dome pas=
t the telescope during a long exposure, the telescope shows through, creati=
ng a sort of transparent dome effect.  The pictures are here.
