“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

Whenever I have come into large sums of money in my life, I always put half of it aside to spend on fast cars and the pursuit of loose women.
I put aside the other half to spend frivolously.
Quote:I think it's a nice, secure dovetail design. Nothing wrong with it at all.
