I don't think Tony is going to get much sleep tonight or tomorrow night.

Very excited for you!

Instead of a motorcycle I have a telescope. Much safer but then again there aren't many pretty girls hanging around the telescope fields. At least not any around here.

Good thing, I'd never hear the end of it if there were.

Tony you need to start preparing for whatever ritual keeps bad weather away. All of this new equipment all at once is sure to bring in a hurricane to North Carolina.

Yes, I do have some concern about that. Do not want to be blamed for death and destruction.

I am just down the road from Tony and we had quite the mid March Thunderstorm last night. I think the intensity of bad weather when you buy new equipment varies exponentially with the size of the scope you bought. I predict that the first Hurricane of the year will be named Anthony and it will head straight up I-40 North-West and bound for the Triangle.

Just kidding. I am sure these clouds that suddenly appeared when Tony's scope hit NC will clear sometime next week or perhaps later this month.

I will do the video if you provide the beer? The camera doesn't love me either. However, after a few beers I won't care.

Is there an online manual for the LX850? Sometimes it is easier to search through a digital manual rather than the paper manual.

Travis, if you want to do a video, you will have to come over tomorrow at noon, when the scope is scheduled to arrive. Otherwise, I will have it all ripped open and splayed all over the ground.

And, yes, there is a PDF for the LX850:

Tomorrow? I thought it was today(Tuesday). Sad feelings for you.

Mine *might* ship out tomorrow. If it does there is the smallest chance I might get it Friday or Monday. The way my luck has gone though I fully expect April.

I just hope to be able to evaluate it in time for a meaningful conversation with Meade at NEAF about any issues...
