Quote:CPC 1100 arrived today. After a weekend of call, I'm too damn tired to set it up....will have to wait another day or two. Prospects for viewing here are lousy for the next several days, anyways.
Quote:Spent a little time out myself. I caught the moon with Jupiter off to the left of it, both looked good with the 13mm Hyperion EP, It was around 6-30pm and both were low in the sky. Still I enjoyed the time out just chasing stars across the sky looking no where in particular but seeing every thing at the same time.....
