Greenville Bill Gimple Attempted but no data Clouded out :-(
Quincy Ron Logan Did not attempt
Portola Shelley Callahan Did not attempt
Gardnerville Jerry Bardecker Data collected, no event seen Recorded a 6 min window around LuckyStar predicted event time 07:01 UT. Video recording of mag 15 target star at 32X with WAT910HX. Video analysis with PyMovie indicated clearly indicated no event of the predicted mag drop.
Bishop Joe Slovacek Attempted but no data Met up with Ed and a fellow high school teacher at Lee Vining. Was able to set up the equipment; all worked fine. However, there was dense fog in the area that prevented the acquisition of data.
Beatty John Heller Data collected, no event seen Clear skies, good data capture. No visual dimming of target star observed during capture. My analysis with PYMovie did not produce an evident light curve. :-( Log sheet in folder with capture files.
Wildwood Joe Wise Data collected There was a lot of moisture in the air. Star field faded in and out of view. New student's first "solo" campaign.
Idyllwild Libby Dabrowski Data collected I was on field for about 10 minutes before recording. Switched to the 2 second exposure time right before capture and then I think I lost then field some how or just couldn't pick out the right stars with the longer exposure time. If the target is anywhere in my images I believe it would be on then far right side , if I caught it at all.
Yuma Dorey Conway Weathered out Did not attempt, cloudy skies.
