Starfest was a success.  Had to deal with some clouds, but heard some great talks and got to look through some telescopes.  Thanks to all of our guests for attending.  Plan for Starfest 2018 returning to August next year.

And the winner is…  M57, the Ring Nebula.  Thanks to all who participated in the voting.
