Maybe you'll finally be competitive!

Meanwhile, I'm waiting for my secret weapon (to be announced at a later date)...

Thank's Stephy and AZ. Nikki baked me a cake. Figured all those candles would be a fire hazard so she made it my "Sweet 16"

Had a very nice visit with a group of locals this morning (most, if not all, are CN members). We meet for breakfast every now and then. Today we ate and then I conned the gang into working - we took everything off the observatory mount, then removed the mount. Now there's just an empty pier in there. Then, Scott (Backyard Observatories) and I removed the homebrew cable roof drive I installed ten years ago and installed his much cooler rack and pinion drive. SO - the roof is better than ever, but there's no gear inside!

I do have plans, though, and they don't involve anything from AP or Bisque...
