NEW time and NEW day - Sunday's at 7pm CST

It's that time of year again when we're visited by all kinds of ghosts, ghouls, princesses and tinker-bells vying for sweet treats at every door. Why not treat them to some "spooky" celestial showpieces and use the opportunity to perform some astronomy outreach! This year may not be the best time to present the Moon, only a thin crescent will be visible. Jupiter would be grand, but probably rises too late for most to view. But don't fret, there are still PLENTY of objects visible to show case, and I'll discuss my favorites during this show. 

All of this and your observing reports, telescope talk, eyepieces, mounts and more, on the next At The Eyepiece Show.
