    LAS is moving to a new website.   You are seeing it right here.  There is still much to do on it and suggestions are welcome.

    Last night’s star party at Rabbit Mountain was a great success.  Skies were clear and temperatures were tolerable.  I believe we had around 19 guests and 8 scopes set up.  So there were no long lines at any scopes.

    Everything was well run with Boulder Country handling traffic and parking.

    Thanks to everyone that came out and helped make it a great evening.
