Lincoln Hills Astronomy Group
October 2018

Bob Collins organized this month's star party at the Sports Pavilion.
We had a good crowd of about twenty folks stop by. Carla LaFave took most of
the photos, and Ron Yelton added a few as well. Ron Olson came out with his Pad and
showed us what all of the object would look like in color.
Bill Weaver, Ron Yelton, Al and Carol Witten and  Jack Uppal provided the telescopes.
We had great views of Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, and as it got darker we were able to tease out
some Deep Sky Objects such as the Ring Nebula, the Dumbbell Nebula and the Andromeda Galaxy.
