It just occurred to me that we've got refractor and reflector graemlins, but no other scope types are represented. So for the catadioptric lovers, I added an SCT emoticon, just so you all wouldn't feel left out. :grin:  I had to experiment with different color schemes before I found one that would show up well in all of the different CN color themes.  Meade Blue showed up pretty well in all the CN themes except the Black & White theme, so I had to go with Celestron Orange.  The ubb code is "colon-sct-colon." 

 

Let me know what you all think.

Hmmm, looks like a Meade SCT to me. The Celestron CPC mount base is much wider.

 

Scott, maybe you will have to make one for the Celestron folks!!!  :lol:

I think it's actually a Meade LX200 in Celestron Orange.  The Meade Blue color didn't play nice with some of the CN background colors, and I couldn't find a template for a Celestron CPC or Nexstar.

For those of you who prefer the Meade Blue color, I added back the blue-colored SCT graemlin.  The ubb code is "colon-sct2-colon."  Just be aware that it won't show up well if you use the CN black & white color theme, but IMO looks better than the orange graemlin with all the other CN color themes.

Truth be known, I didn't know that we had an emoticon limit either.  I guess some of us aren't going to be able to adequately represent all of our scopes, lol. :grin:

Personally, I would liketo know when our "community" started discriminating against the poor Emoticons!  I believe this is in violation of Federal law!!  :bawling:
