We haven't used this old Meade telescope for several years. It tipped over a decade ago in an earthquake and some of the lever systems for fine tuning cracked or broke. I've jury-rigged it for tonight.
Update: Unlike many places, it was crystal clear on Neklason Lake. Judy, Strider and I went out onto the ice and watched as the earth's shadow slowly covered the moon's reflected brightness. It was stunning. The telescope did not work - the gears are stripped on its lever systems. We have some good binoculars, though.
Steve Aufrecht got a series of good photos in Anchorage, before clouds obscured the moon:
