Thanks Jim,
I know how difficult loss of vision is. My wife taught elementary school but had to leave since she could no longer see the pencil the kids use. It wasn't all bad we had our first daughter the next year and she has been home with her and our other little girl since.

My older daughter go me interested in Astronomy about a year and half ago when she started asking questions about planets. We got some books and ended up getting a telescope. We both joined the local astronomy club and I have really been enjoying it. My wife likes to come out and see what we are up to.

Since we don't have a tracking scope it looks like the video cameras won't work. But, so far I have found a lot of good information from you and the other folks in the forum. So at some point we may look into a tracking scope with a video output.

I can only imagine how beautiful the skies are out at the Grand Canyon. We were out there about 14 years ago and it was really amazing.

Hope your wifes vision improves

Clear Skies

Ken
