I got a fox a few times and get cats from time to time at home. When I head out to the state park I sometimes hear movement in the tree line. Thats when I go sit in the car

She was back last night. I almost walked out on her in my garbage, but I saw the can tipped over in front of my door. Fortunately, she showed up 5m after I shut everything down.

My garbage was all over the place, but I wasn't worried about the scope.

Or maybe I should've been...


Look at the fence. That bent area is where she jumped over. There is no more then 36" between the fence and my mount. I would be surprised if she didn't bump the mount. I'll know tonight when I look through the polar scope.

My PHD guiding bear alarm went off again last night. My friends came over last night to look out for the bear and she showed up. We never saw her, but we heard her.

I heard the PHD alarm and looked at my iPad. A big spike on the PHD graph. The exposure finished a few seconds later and I got my first bad sub since I bought my Mach 1. I knew what happened, my friend didn't believe me until he saw the fence. It's bent further.

If she's back tonight, my wife wants me to call game control. Normally, I'd say no, but I don't want to buy a new telescope.

Try pouring some bleach in and on your garbage can, the smell might be enough to make her leave.
