Larry Campbell and I had a great time today working with the cub scouts.  We got there earlier and setup two scopes, a 5" Dob that my daughter and I made several years ago, and a 3 1/2 " refractor.  We tag-teamed a myth busters theme on astronomy and took questions at the end.  We talked about viewing without a scope, the types of scopes, not spending a lot on equipment, and not needing high power to see objects.  We had a number of great questions, and lot of the folks had already been to Broemmelsiek to see us before.  There were about 90 people, scouts and adults, and everyone had a great time.
