Cactus Patch Observatory / 14" LX200
"The four points of the compass be logic, knowledge, wisdom, and the unknown. Some do bow in that final direction. Others advance upon it. To bow before the one is to lose sight of the three."
Quote:Kevin's a nice guy.
The pictures are wonderful. However, please give us a bit of narrative about what we are seeing in the pictures.

Quote:LOL! I suspect most of us have been looking for a copy of the original!Funny, I never thought about that before. It's been sort of a Holy Grail for me for years; but I've never seen one until now.

Quote:Always wanted to start getting this, the original self-produced Burnhams--but never got around to it. I was real sorry about that when I finally glommed onto the 3-volume edition in the late 80s.

Theoretical Amateur Astronomer (currently without scope)
“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:Rick, you were at Lowell Observatory a few days ago. Have you ever seen anything similar to the photos posted?
Quote:Daniel...The pictures are wonderful. However, please give us a bit of narrative about what we are seeing in the pictures.Thank You.
Quote:I just sent a note to my friend that is the astronomy prof here at our local college. He remembers having a copy but probably threw it out when he got his hardbacks! This might be the fate of many copies.
