Out of curiosity, is there going to be a BEOTS this year? Sorry if this was mentioned before, but I have been out of the loop as of late in the thread.




I'd like to know that too. BEOTS this year?

To the best of my knowledge, this was the last post addressing that concern.

Uh, Patrick...click on the this in my post above (repeated here to be extra annoying)! The first post at that link is from Scotty and that's the last we've heard - again, to my knowledge.

Each time I click the "this" it brings up a blank page Dave. I recall that they may well NOT have a BEOTS this year. They are way busy! That is good news for the Horstman clan! Read on page 11 post number #5812829 - 04/21/13 11:29 AM

Hi Lenny,
That's peculiar! When I click on the "this" link, it pulls up exactly the post by Scotty that you mention. I have no idea why it doesn't work for you - and perhaps others.

On a completely different topic, did you see the very recent Meade news? link

I'm just getting a blank field in the Ohio Never Ending Star Party thread, too.

OK, let's try this link. Please report if this one works!

The problem is, that it depends on how many "posts per page" your settings are on, which can affect how the link comes out. Different people have different settings and get a different result with some links. That happens all the time. For the record, I too had the blank page, and I have my settings at 30 posts per page rather than the default 20.

The new and improved link worked, though, Dave!

Thanks, Steph! I had no idea the posts-per-page setting would have that effect. I'm at the 25/page default setting. One learns something new every day, doesn't one!

Hi Pat. If it happens this year it'll be short notice. We're expecting orders from TN, TX and NM within the next few days and then we have to get ready and go.

In the mean time we're expecting some others so I have no idea how I can set a date.

Thanks for the info Scott. I hope you guys have a great year this year! If you do have a get together, I'll try to make it up that way, even for one night.

Pat

No posts in almost two weeks? Hope everyone is doing swell.

I've been busy looking for jobs, interviewing, and imaging.

I'm still around. Still trying to get some sky time with the LX850, but this time of year it gets dark late and here in the city the seeing doesn't settle down until MUCH later yet (surrounded by concrete, asphalt, bricks, etc.).

Grabbed a quickie of M13 just to have something to show.

That's a great shot John. How is the LX850 performing for you? I ask because it's on my short list of mounts to purchase once I get working again.

Here are a couple of my recent images:

I like the LXD850, and everything seems to work well. Haven't been able to do any rigorous tracking tests, though. At 2400mm a star changes shape and size on every 3 second exposure so the centroid is all over the place with evening seeing here. I need a clear weekend night so I can stay up until things settle down. Things average out over long exposures so I get bigger stars than I want but they don't look too bad. The Starlock works at a shorter focal length and doesn't appear to be bothered. Here's a quickie from tonight...
