New Gear Jinx / by Jeff Tropeano

The iOptron SkyTracker I ordered came today (thanks UPS for getting all of the delivery issues squared away).  Combine that with new moon, and you've got a pretty good guarantee that wherever I'll be, it'll be cloudy.

The wife and I are planning to camp tonight near the Great Sand Dunes on our way to Santa Fe this weekend, and I was hoping to get some wide angle landscape images out of the evening, but I may have jinxed myself by buying new gear.

Lesson learned.

 Sky forecast for July 25th and July 26th. I bet I can jinx this weather.

Isn’t it ironic? Don’t you think?
