Sunday night 3 of us ventured to the Vekol road observing site and were treated 
to a fantastic night.  I expected to be alone and found two other people there. 
 I was treated to spectacular views of Jupiter through Mike Mellow's new 12 
inch Starmaster, which was quite an impressive scope.  At about 11:00 the 
seeing was so good I could easily see details in the GRS and the equatorial 
zones, which I have never seen before visually.  Also had nice views of several 
galaxies in Ursa Major through his scope.  Very steady, sharp and crisp view of 
Saturn as well.   It was a great night.  There have been all to few of those 
this year.
