“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
IF YOU COULD SEE FROM WHENCE YOU CAME YOU WOULD KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING TOO.
Quote:IMHO:I do not know if it is there, because I did not look. However, a statement such as the above ought to be attached to the review where all that read the review can see the reply.

"Considered as a collector of rare and precious things, the amateur astronomer has a great advantage over amateurs in other fields ... the amateur astronomer has access at all times to the original objects of his study; the masterworks of the heavens belong to him as much as to the great observatories of the world. And there is no privilege like that of being allowed to stand in the presence of the original." --Robert Burnham Jr, Burnham's Celestial Handbook
