The photo of you is great, but I can't wrap my brain around the concept of "Scott..." and "Noble"

We miss you guys here at the PSSG, and reports are Josh was really disappointed the Nikkster couldn't make it.

Thank you David and Uncle Rusty!

Oh I know Josh is upset. He called Nik last night and didn't quite understand why we weren't coming. Sadly Scott is in WV and I have the surgery in 6 days. No Kubota / 4-wheeler adventure this year. Please pass along my apologies. I miss you and the whole "Josh" family.

Getting ready for the next fight. I have to say the gentleman that Howard is fighting against has an intimidating Norse (right Howard?) helmet.

This was such an awesome adventure! Thank you Howard for sharing this step back in time. I really appreciate it!

(BTW, the clothes I was wearing, and especially the cloak, kept me warm on such a beautiful sunny, but chilly, day.)

Those are great pics, Di. Howard's done a great job on his armour and you look perfect in your period clothing!

When I was a wee kid one of my neighbors was an SCA member, he did all his own blacksmithing work and let me hang out in his garage and watch. I've always been fascinated by medieval weapons and clothing.

What a pretty Scottish Noble women you are!! Scott is a lucky peasant

Looks like you had fun. I would love to see that event.

I wonder if they ever come down to central Ohio for their events??

Paul and I were always planning on seeing one of Howard's events. It just never happened before we moved. I'm really glad you got to experience it!

Thank you Jason!

Carol, it was a fantastic weekend! Malcolm was beside himself with happiness when the boys came.

It was great that you could see it all for yourself and my pleasure that you could join me "back" in the 14th century for the day.

This scope is taller than I had thought ,lol.....so some sort of like 6 inch riser is in order when the scope is straight up, other wise its feet firmly one the ground.
She a sweet looking scope, and everything a finely made scope should be, my only addition will feet of some sort of feet on the bottom so I can set her down while I go back for the rocker box.
Probably weeks of clouds and rain, lol, hopefully the ES 24mm 82 degree fov ep will be here long before that.

This probably as big as Im willing to go so she will be my last upgrade.

Now we wonder what will happen to Scott the Knave when he returns to the fiefdom.

Last Monday, Oct 8th, I attended an impromptu star party at the ACA Observatory. I used my Canon DSLR to image Comet 168P/Hergenrother. It was well positioned inside the Great Square of Pegasus, near Alpheratz.

Here is the result of my effort.
