Looks as though that new focuser is working great! Appears to be spot on. :waytogo:

That 14" F/8 OTA is doing a fine job as well. I think that line of optics will be a winner if Meade survives. If they don't, you should be glad you got one while you could.

p.s. The Club's new 16" F/10 LX200ACF is on a truck, headed this way. We got in on the last production run. They are planning to offer the 16" only in the F/8 LX600 version going forward (if there IS a "going forward").

Nice image Len! Glad to see the new OTA is serving you well.

Funny, I never put the terms "Cuz shooting the Moon" and "nice image" together in my head before. :scared: :roflmao: :step:

Stopping by to say hello. I'm in Beirut, Lebanon right now and have been since June. Coming home 8/3. Learning Arabic. Hello.

Hi,

We are having a rare clear night in NE Ohio tonight. My gear is packed in the back of the car and I'm heading out in a bit.

Hope you have a good trip!

Glad you have cooperating weather for a change. All of Lebanon is pretty badly light polluted, although it is usually clear. I'll bet there are some good observing places in the hills out in the countryside.

Here in the Sunshine State, there's been so much rain (especially over the headwaters and lake that feed the river I live on) that I have to monitor the river in case I have to move the motorhome. But this is routine, as the RV pad is in the low point of the yard, next to the now-flooded woods...

Hi all! You, Rick, like me are seizing the moment of rarity here. I mean...it was freaking clear last night and tonight looks to be even better!
I shot M27 last night with my 14" Meade LX850 ota on my AP1200 mount. This is in the Hubble Platform" filtration.

Nice work as usual Cuz!. I'll try to catch you guys in the AM for breakfast. Just got back from IL and have to leave again for CT in a couple days. Been home about a week out of every month for a while. Gotta make hay while the sun shines I reckon.

Happy birthday too old timer!
