Howdy guys.. well, I got me another PST from an estate sale. Brand new in a box with case. Never was used. It works beautifully! I promise not to sell this one. It is good to be back to the red side!

Andy, I have not forgotten your scope bud. I have to get the garage finished before I can start cutting wood.

Andy,

Heheh... no kidding! I am currently in catch-up mode for all the yard work that was missed last year because of our surgeries. We need to get a shed built and once that is done.. get stuff out of the garage so we can finish it! *Then* I can get telescope building going again. Lots of work to do. But I am enjoying it... I am thinking of using one of the flocked tubes from Protostar for your 8".

Jason

Out of curiosity, is there going to be a BEOTS this year? Sorry if this was mentioned before, but I have been out of the loop as of late in the thread.

When I receive the last 26 pound C/W I'm waiting for, I'll have 144 pounds of counterweights for my new mount. Sadly, the mount won't handle anything near that.
