You are so very welcome! Sharing astronomy is one of the greatest joys in my life. Sharing it with other astronomers is twice the pleasure.

Thanks for the write up, Drew ... and hello from SE Wisconsin! I will be teaching astronomy again next year (Tremper HS) and I am hoping to get the students involved with more public outreach. Astrophotography or "live video" would be pretty cool!

This is exactly why I do astrophotography. I enjoy it yes, but it's more of a vehicle for me to extend outreach beyond the eyepiece.
