Folx,
I know this is late but, weather willing, the Rockville, MD. is holding a Science Day this Sunday at the Montgomery College Rockville Campus from Noon to 5pm. My Son will be running my G11 with an AT6RC, & I'll be there with my HGM-200 with a C6R, PST, & 8" R200SS. (Yes, ALL on the same mount.) :jawdrop:

Scott,
Same Bat time, Same Bat channel, next year. LOL It was a pretty good event. Wayne from WAS came & did his Comet making demo, another guy, (whos name escapes me again :o) from NCA were there. We had 150-200 people come over & look at the scopes, watch the demo, talk with us. My son was running my venerable G11 with an AT6RC, I had my HGM G2 with a 8" R200ss & PST. I was going to hang a C6R as well but the dovetail wouldn't grip, so back in the truck it went. The rain started about 3 we were packed & gone by 3:30-3:45.
For next year: http://www.rockville...org/rcsday.html
