It seems like my posts are getting fewer and farther between. I have been fairly busy, so there should be some good stuff to add here.

Last night I was given the largest telescope I have ever seen for home use. The tube is about 6 feet long and 10 inches in diameter. The base weighs about 80 pounds. This is not something to be moved around on a lark. I understand that it is custom built. It has a drive motor to keep it synched with the stars in the sky.

I have no idea how good it is. I'll plan to post some pics when I get it all re-assembled.

Cool! Will we get to look through it when we come over for D&D tomorrow?

I don't think I will have it put together by tomorrow night. Probably this weekend. I think I want to buy some new caster wheels for the base too.
