“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:When my stepdad died back in October I inherited his telescope equipment, books, etc. Along with that stuff were his observing notes. My grandson and I have decided that we are going to go through my stepdad's notes and using his (my stepdad's) equipment we are going observe all of the objects he observed. We will compare our own observations to his. It will be fun (and sad) to read everything he wrote and making the comparisons. It will almost be like having him with us as we observe. My stepdad's scope is a TMB 80mm refractor and he had it on an iOptron Cube. Most of his observations were of double stars from light polluted skies. This will be one of the projects I work on when I can't make it to a dark site. It's nice to have something to work on in my backyard. Now I just need to find a way to work it into the other 500 things going on in my life.
