Yes, I too have telescopes and all of them are Go-To. Wherever I push them, that's where they Go-To. "When you earnestly believe you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there's no end to what you can't accomplish"

Quote:As for the darkroom equipment, you can hardly give the
stuff away, so I dumped it along with the paper & chemicals.
I will not miss darkroom work. Spending countless hours
breathing stop-bath & fixer fumes (yes I had a ventilation
fan in the darkroom) probably contributed to the chronic
migraine headaches I get now. I'll take PhotoShop anyday.
Quote: I love my darkroom, totally state of the art, not nearly as stinky chemistry in using citrus based stop bath and a super high tech variable speed ventilation system.
