Elements in Harmony II and IV


Elements in Harmony II and IV

Here are two of my scopes, Elements in Harmony II, a 20"f4.2 (1992), and EiH IV, a 36"f4.5 (2007) in northern Arizona... See June '08 S&T, page 75.

    I was thinking Kong and Son of Kong, but that would do also.

    Thanks Matt. No, Ahhnold didn't move it for me.... I built what I call the Rover Hardware, which bolted to the rockerbox walls so that it could be lifted and moved. Check out my website for further details; http://darkskyobserving.com/36.html, specifically the 'Locomotion' link.
    This is really an awesome pic. Love it!
    BTW, I just went to your website. Can I live in your garage?

    Thanks, the 36" had just come online and the 20" was going back home since it was displaced in the obs. A friend took several photos. You know, the garage only has rudimentay tools but does have som in every food group of tools... lol.
    I can’t believe a 20” looks small in comparison.
