Hey, good stuff, Len! That 106 never ceases to amaze and teamed up the the 8300 chip, it makes for some terrific images.

Lenny are you swiping images from Hubble site and reprocessing them again?


We talked about that. It's not fair to the rest of the class. :4

Had a very nice visit with a group of locals this morning (most, if not all, are CN members). We meet for breakfast every now and then. Today we ate and then I conned the gang into working - we took everything off the observatory mount, then removed the mount. Now there's just an empty pier in there. Then, Scott (Backyard Observatories) and I removed the homebrew cable roof drive I installed ten years ago and installed his much cooler rack and pinion drive. SO - the roof is better than ever, but there's no gear inside! :foreheadslap:

I do have plans, though, and they don't involve anything from AP or Bisque...
