If I recall chiefdanfox has and/or brings one although I don't know personally, only from eplaya, you might try pm'ing him and asking.
Excuse me Ma'am, your going to feel a small prick.

We have brought a least one telescope for many years, but you can only see the stars at night. We use it to spy on Larry Harvey.

Ohio looks like a telescope. Maybe that's just the painpills I'm on.

Some newbies this year in Barbie Death Village plan on not only bringing a telescope, but an art vehicle to transport it/them in. If you want to discuss it, I'll be happy to give you their email addy, but I only have it at work. Go ahead and email me at: james.jacoby@wachoviasec.com .

Planetarium Camp

Postby professorzed » Tue Mar 10, 2009 9:22 pm

There is a guy called Mike (playa name McGuyver) that has been running a Planetarium camp for the last three years. He says that the fierce winds really kicked his butt last year. Because he needs low light, he is usually camped out around 'D' and 9:00 streets.

I have his e-mail, but I'm not sure I should give it out without asking his permission first.

i would love to come visit him and hang out. I couldnt believe how great the stars were without a telescope so with that view it would be a great. It would mean a great deal to me and it sounds like he has the same feeling about the stars :D

In 2007 I used Spica and Vega to align in the early afternoon, and we looked at a crescent Venus and watched Jupiter for awhile. Then we drank beer. The playa has been so dusty, that a 20'-30' high platform would go a long way out there. You wind up looking at dust, so star viewing is not much better than what I can do from my house in Oakland. Not sure about going this year, but if I go, the scope will again tag along. I set it up in Hushville last year.
