I have decided to start a distribution list for sending out alerts to anyone who might wish to join me when I am going out with the telescope. After giving considerable thought to announcing via email, Facebook, and Twitter, I landed on mobile text. This method, I believe, will be easiest for me to use, is used by more people than any other communication channel, and a text message is likely to get noticed sooner than one sent by any other means. My initial thinking is that I will project a possible event about two days ahead of a night that I am available and the forecast predicts clear weather, and then send a follow up confirmation early the evening that I am going out. Please let me know if you would like to be added to my alert list.
