Sounds like I am going to give a tutorial, doesn’t it? Well, I know better than trying to ‘splain myself. I always get it wrong somehow, which is why this post is necessary.
In my previous post, Goodbye Moon, I complained about an inaccuracy with TPE. The software’s developer, Stephen Trainor, popped in and shared some information, which I should have known, about the use of the program that would have saved me the disappointment. So I am sharing a link to the video that will help you, and me, get there on time and in the right place.
About 5 minutes in is the information about elevations and how to plan for them. I did watch this a long time ago and that part of the program disappeared from my consciousness. My bad, as some say. RTFM, as some say. This post is to straighten out my undeserved complaint as a way of a) being up front about things…even when they embarrass me…and b) thanking Stephen for creating this fine software and sharing it with us. And I do mean share….it is free for your desk or laptop and just a small amount for your pad or phone.
And, as an example of how it did get me to the right place at the right time, here is one more full moon image from the morning of Saturday the 12th looking at the Holyoke Range from Mount Pollux.Thanks, Stephen.
