About the General Meeting Presentation

On the morning of August 20 I set up for the Moon and was rewarded with both the scope acting good and the local seeing settling down for about half an hour to the best I have ever had here in San Antonio. The result was image resolution that shows craters as small as one kilometer. I finally had time to prepare a web page for these images and have it up at http://www.robertreeves.com/Moon20Aug2011.htm.
