on The Fascination
Our viewing Location on the Cruise Ship Fascination. I was never worried about the weather, even after cruising through a minor cold rainfall. I expressed confidence in the Captain on a ship's interview that didn't survive the cutting room according to "Deck neighbors". I was edited out because I made too much sense.. That is me (Greg Babcock) inset left picture, on my back waiting viewing through a 70mm TeleVue Pronto. What is not seen. About 20 minutes prior to first contact, Steve Swayze discovered that his Telescope would not focus. In classic last second Steve style, he had not tested his newly completed clever 8 inch Telescope with a Camera. He came at me with-"WHERE'S MEL?" Mel had spacers to fix the problem. Steve's scope was re-assembled on a Pin Pong Table. Below Left: Captain after Speaking to the "Eclipse Group". Below Right: Aruba. This is where the "Land Observers" viewed from.
