My Charlotte Vacation
April of 2007 we visited Charlotte, North Carolina, where we are

there we walked the downtown area. I captured the full moon rising next
to the Sohio tower.
I contacted a member of the Charlotte Amateur Astronomy Club and became
a member. While in Charlotte
I visited their Observatory site. Click on the panorama below to

us to the club and observatory.
He's setting up his 12" Meade SCT.
While at the Observatory, I shot the following photo. That's Venus,
