My observing report

As I drove up the winding road to my backyard, I idly mused upon the higher implications of Yahoo P/E ratios as I contemplated the approaching chlorofluorocarbons ... would it be warmer tonight?. When I arrived at the parking lot, it was filled with friends eager for a night's observing. I counted at least 47 telescopes set up.

I started my night's observing with one of my favorite objects, M 76 in Pisces Austrinus. It appeared to be Demi Moore. Then, I hunted NGC 3737. It took me back to the first time I saw ripples of water. With that checked off my list, I observed IC 1840. It was better than a far-away cloud. After that, I added to my logbook B 14. It compared favorably with a cantilever bra. With that checked off my list, I checked out IC 1202. It appeared at low power like cotton on velvet. With that checked off my list, I located Abell 31. It gave the appearance of diamonds on light grey velvet.

Finally, it was time to pack up and leave. As I drove home, I contemplated the events of the night, and realized that any night out under the sky with good friends is better than stacking 400 Mars images by hand.
