With a computer scope you can actually see between the leaves. If you had to star hop it would be harder.

OK, this shows off my boys more than the scope... but that is my N11 in the background, taken in Sept 05. (about 2 months old - the scope that is).

No bells and whistles at that time except the Telrad, the AP diagonal and the Nagler inserted in it... or that may be a Radian?

That garage is to neat, though looks like some wordworking takes place in there, to far from Texas to make me some cabniets,

Ahhh... but you've never seen it in the midst of a project... don't let the pics fool you!

Plus, my brother had just finished painting the walls and floor, and I had a new door put on. It was a great photo opp! That was last Sept when the photo was taken, it looks much different (and not as neat) now.

Be careful - the next thing you know, the N11 will load itself up with bling!

If it's going to do that, It better get itself a job first

Nice rig!

Yes scopes seem to attract accessories. Greg have you gotten a 2in diagonal for yours yet?

Thanks; a job seems to be out of the question - it still lives at home, and only rarely comes out of its case...and then only when I prod it!

I just picked this guy up a couple of hours ago. Haven't even aligned the finder yet!

There are clouds overhead so no playing with new toy tonight

Now if I can only figure out what I did wrong can see a thing thur the NX11!
I know it has to be operator error and as soon as some one tells me what I did I will nominate myself for CN's Idiot of 07 award for Febuary.

What an unimpressive observation point.....that beautiful patio with a lake view is too distracting for a serious stargazer.

How do you like the wheely setup? I'm awaiting my scopebuggy at this time.

Thanks, I think

Actually, I had the Scopebuggy and it was very nice. The Scopebuggy's footprint was too large for my needs, but otherwise would have been a keeper.
