You know Rich - that was great and very moving was the Bob G. Vid. I have to believe he was a great man.

Thanks, Pete. He was a great man to me. I put the show together when he was dying, and it started me off creating more things like that. He and my mother gave me my first telescope as a kid, and on cold observing nights I often wear an old flannel shirt that was once his.

It is indeed a very moving tribute Richard!! You are lucky to have had such a mentor-- but I'm sure you already know that!

thanks for sharing-- each step of the journey only makes you want to see that nest step does'nt it?
