Every week I do something new to reduce light pollution. Eyes on the Sky is at 600,000+ views so far; more views = more awareness. Please consider sharing with others.

"A craftsman relies on science when knowledge allows it, tradition and experience when it does not, and makes art whenever he can." 14 built scopes from 4.25 to 18" and a 24" in (perpetual) progress. 15 ATM awards. Co-mounted CPC 1100 EdgeHD/TAK FS-102/Orion ED80T on a trash-cart for when I'm feeling lazy. "Simple minds discuss people. Good minds discuss events. Great minds discuss telescopes." http://stardazed.com/
