It was great seeing Andy this past weekend. I wish he could have stayed longer.

Thanks for the comments on my scopes. They are a labor of love. I got Albert Highe's new ATM book and I want to try out some of the stuff that is in the book. Your scope will provide an excellent test subject... mwahahahah!!!

Once I get the garage done, and the floor put in, I will start working on it. I will post progress pics on Facebook of course (and in this thread).

Hope you like it when it is finished.

Jason

Lenny,

Wonderful as usual. Now that I have a U2K again, I may start imaging (need to get a CCD first.)

I think I may want to go the fastar route this time.

What am I thinking?!?!?

Andy,

Seeing you 70lbs lighter makes me want to get to eating better.

So I only had one donut this morning!!

First light with the U2K this evening. It slews and aligns great! The only thing is it tracks in altitude backwards (probably a polarity problem, easily fixed) and it needs collimated (again easily fixed).

She found a good home Andy. Now I am already thinking about a new camera and a hyperstar system

It seemed like the secondary was jarred by something like a brick or other hard thing...





Not a problem. Collimation is fixable. Your head isn't (it appears to be ok? hehehehehe)

Andy!

I thought so! I remember seeing you much heavier with the pot belly! How in the world did you do that? Just eating less? I lost 30 lbs over a 3 year period but damn do I have a passion for food. If I could just buckle down and really do this... I KNOW I would feel quite a bit better.

+1 Andy. You're lookin great! You look like Greg Lake in that pic with Jason.

BTW do you have your concealed carry permit? You'd better because toting guns like that might not be legal otherwise.

Lenny; it aint easy bud, I fall back into eating habits, then buckle down and work out harder to make up for it.
Mostly cutting out eating at night, smaller portions, my dietician tells me she cant help me, Im already below where she'd like to see me for calorie intake.
