The most recent astronomy adventure was a trip to:

Kitt Peak National Optical Astronomy Observatories for two nights of work as part of the Advanced Observing Program. The observation dates were June 21 & 23, 1998 (New Moon). CCD images were taken and are available to view on this web site.

Lead Guide Adam Block and Guides Flynn Haase and Steven White were excellent and made the observing runs both educational and fun. The Advanced Observing Program at Kitt Peak is well worth the modest investment.
