indifference or neutrality towards those we perceive as wicked or evil. We could then avoid all wars correct?

Thanks Bill, it's a good challenge trying to untangle Celestron's serial numbering methods!

The model is actually a 1950 Chrysler Town and Country, part of the Franklin Mint Cars of the Fifties collection.

Lovely Dan. Looks like the twin of our latest arrival, Sophie, who is also jet black.

It looks like this forum is the place to troll for information after someone found a telescope and decided to put it up for sale!

It's good to blow the carbon out of the engine once in awhile.

nice Gerald

I need to make room so I can do that. However, things are a bit crowded. I get asked to take pictures of what I got. That means I got to take it all out of the boxes and set it up. Then put it back away. One of these days when I have things neat and orderly I will do that. Right now if I take a pic I would be embarrased if you saw the mess.

Thanks guys. When i divided off my basement i ended up with a space at the walk out level entrance left over. Lately it has been just what the Dr. ordered. My scope space. The door to the right was a slider but i recently changed it to a french. Easy out the door for observing. Except the 4".
Even those clumsey newts live there.

Terra, I apologize for my taking this too far and making it personal.

Dave, no I don't really want to see any changes, any more rules

Tim, prices are something we all talk about here including
me.

Everyone else, sorry for the rant. I'm thinking it's a good time for me to take a break.
