New members can now join using an online form which can be found at cas_join_us.htm

The link to the new form can be found on the upper right corner of the home page. That button was formerly the "News" link but was not used much since the news always ends up on the home page anyway. The new page can also be used for paying dues and making donations to the club - all online.




Richard Edmonds has posted new lunar photos which can be found at richard_e_lunar_2a.htm

The Citadel - Wupatki, Arizona, 2015




September 27, 2015

I tried to catch the lunar eclipse from atop the Citadel at Wupatki National Monument (U.S. National Park Service) but a hazy cloud cover moved in and obscured the more complete eclipse. Before that occurred I managed to capture images of the moon rising partially in eclipse.

Canon 60Da, Vivitar 70-210 mm Series 1 Zoom lens with doubler.

Flagstaff - September 29, 2015




September 29, 2015

This was taken from the court in front of the house. I was hoping for a clear night. Instead, clouds were parked in the wrong spot for over an hour - Orion 120mm prime focus, Nikon D90, ISO 2000, 1/160 sec.

A close up of the Elephant Trunk on the left and a wide field of IC 1396 on the right. The wide field was taken with my TMB-92 refractor and is stack of 3 x 5 min exposures with the Canon 6D shooting at ISO 6400 and IDAS LPS V4 filter.

Theophilus/Mädler




September 5, 2015

These images of the Bürg/Lacus Mortis region and Theophilus/Mädler, respectively, were not taken under ideal conditions, with high thin clouds, gusty winds and less that great seeing (6 our of 10 at best). Nevertheless, my new ZWO ASI 120C camera and C-14 HD shooting at f/11 and far red filter worked flawlessly. Images were stacked and processed in Registax and PS C6. I processed the former to maximize the fault line Rima Bürg and surroundings, and Theophilus to highlight the crater ejecta under low illumination.
