    Thanks again all for the continued helpful posts. I'm going to print out this whole thread and add it to a binder of stargazing articles that I've been gathering from the web.

    I'm getting the 2X Barlow. I've got SkySafari for iOS (I've got Stellarium on my PC but on iPhone SkySafari seems better). "Turn Left at Orion" arrived from Amazon a few days ago. I'll get back on Amazon to pick up "The Urban Astronomer's Guide".

    John, tonight your skies will be about as lit up as can be, with Mayweather-Pacquiao in town.

    You're right. I was over at LV Metro's fingerprint center on Wednesday getting my renewal on my gun permit, and it was packed. The lady at the counter told me that the "Working women from as far away as the east coast had been coming in all week to get their work permits." (You may know, "working women" are legal here.)

    Locals here aren't even going near the strip this entire weekend.
