Now they need that Delos in a 5mm and a 7mm. Those are two that I'd like to see. Or maybe an 8mm.

See the 5$ bill taped to the focuser? They had another on the wall 20-30 feet away, and you could easily make out more low contrast detail on the distant bill than the one mere inches from your eyes.

That's called 'middle age' Tom; I have the same problem without my reading glasses these days :lol: ;)
Just kidding of course! Great travelog; this is even better than most of the live video feed.

We did not get last year's NEAF videos uploaded, nor do we have the testing going on for the streaming videos for this year's NEAF even though it is a little over a week away; does this mean that there will be no video for this year's NEAF?
