As expected, the Oregon Star Party is under HEAVY demand this year. But writing my web site monitor paid off! While I was visiting our office in Zuerich, I received a ping that registration opened. I signed up asap - and a few hours later they were full!!
Actually, I almost missed it. During my flight to Zuerich, the Intel Stick (on which the monitor ran) had an issue and I received constant notifications :-( Luckily I could login to Beth computer remotely and from there reconfigure the Intel Stick ... and just in time. A few hours after that registration opened. Phew!!!
... and now I'll have to start working on how I want to image the eclipse...
