“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe

Quote:Some of my fondest childhood memories relate to a 60mm achromat. In this case, a Jason 60/700 on a spindly alt-az mount. Finding anything not visible to the naked eye with that little torture device (the mount, not the scope) was a challenge. Success, however, made you feel like a conquering hero returned, treading the rose-strewn cobbles.
