For those of you unaware of why I would warrant a thread of my own it's important to note that one of my few goals in life is to make sure that Marcus keeps up with his duty to entertain me. Since he will not allow me to operate his Obs remotely I badger him into maintaining it so that he can.

I guess we'll have to fix that too.

I think it is high time that Marcus posts another photograph of the INTERIOR of his observatory...

The last one I saw PROVED to me the only way even he can operate it is to do it remotely himself because of the 1000 wires,cables inside plus the scope camera etc makes it impossible for him to even get inside...

Ok..OK you guys win these were taken today. As you can see I can actually get inside. The obs is currently configured with the refractors. Sorry for the glare but I have the top shutter open so there is some light.

Thank you Marcus! I've always enjoyed your Obs and your site so when you actually live your life and stop feeding my voyeuristic needs I miss you! Thanks for the updates. Now hook up that MallinCam and start a live broadcast on the site! M42 makes a nice target!

Hey Marcus, turn on the lights in the backyard, it's really dark out there!

I need it to be dark out there while I'm hunting old Easter bunnies.

A few of these should do the trick.

Pretty sexy, got $2500.00 laying around to paint your yard with? They look like they'd do a good job.
