    That was very fun! Good crowd of keeners in both disciplines, nice folks. Astronomers stay up late tho, should have anticipated that :-), was hard to wake up this morning.

    Not too many fungi out, but we found some interesting things: Chlorociboria cf. aeruginescens with fruiting bodies, Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa, tons of Entolomas, cf. Mollisia fruiting bodies, Mitrula elegans, Hypomyces sp. and similar parasites, Laccaria laccata, a few Lactarii, several polypores, Hypholoma fasciculare, Heterotextus luteus/alpinus and others.

    Astronomically we saw Saturn and three Saturn moons, Capella, double stars in the big dipper, Mars, several galaxies, the space station ... I can't remember the other finds ... using an intensely impressive variety of telescopes!
