Hawthorne Monica Keady Did not attempt I was unable to attempt the field due to lack of a babysitter. I am trying to get help from other community members as I am unable to commit to future campaigns. Kathy Trujillo has signed up for travel to the meeting this spring and I hope to have help with the scope from her.
Bishop Joe Slovacek Attempted but no data Too cloudy.
Indian Springs Stephen Bock Data collected Recorded field, but strong winds were shaking the telescope.
Searchlight/Boulder City Charlene Wiesenborn Data collected Observation was done in Searchlight. It was clear sky and a beautiful night. The cables on the system leading into the IOTA box needs replacement as they continued to flicker in and out. However during recording of the event I was able to capture the entire event, but it was questionable as the beginning as it took a long time to twist and move the cables to acquire the image on the computer. Looking forward to the meeting in Boulder City to get this figured out. I did not get a light curve generated as I had to leave town early that morning, however the initial recording was sent.
CPSLO Audrey Profeta Data collected
Kingman/Dolan Springs Celeste Lucier Data collected
Laughlin/Bullhead City Jim Estes Data collected Couldn't make a positive identification of the star field. Clear skies. Did not record the Dark Field video. Thought I did, but didn't check to see if the recording started.
Parker Robert Reaves Data collected, no event seen
Wildwood Joe Wise Other issues The IOTA streamed the data for location and time but did not recognize the camera via the LED for camera or in overlaying camera video on screen.
