Hello Jim:

I was at the 2.1-m telescope Thursday night with Mark Trueblood. We drove back and used La Cholla to cut over from Ajo to Starr Pass/22nd.

Just before Starr Pass, Mark asked me what that white dome was on the top of the hill in front of us. He did not know there was a telescope there!

Thanks for these pictures and I will send the link to Mark!
