Per this post about locking and restarting the long threads, here's a new thread for the Pacific Northwest Mt. St. Helen's Eterna-Thread.

The original Mt. St. Helen's Eterna-Thread can be found here, locked but still available to read and copy pics if you wish. :)

Chat on, folks! :cool:

Oh geez, guys. :ohmy: It's not like we're stopping the threads altogether. What good would advance notice do? You both have to admit that opening the old thread was starting to take longer and longer. Happens that way with all the big threads. And the more of those there are, the harder it is on the whole CN server.

This is the way its gotta be. :shrug:

:grin:(I see a funny Op here)

The only real sad thing here is, neither of these *NEW* threads were actually started by rboe or skycaptain... :smirk:

So it appears more like a *hearding*, then an ingenious spontanious thought from an individual amateur astronomer... :grin:

It has the feel of a crude *rat race*, where the unseen *wager*, sets the caged *rodants* loose, on a free for all to compete mindlessly for a prize that is never really realized..... except in the small rinckless brains of the unwitting participants.........running...running...running..to claim the morsal that it hopes will feed a ravenous ego hunger....

I feel like a rat..... :bawling:
A Mindless.....rat.... :bawling:

Running............... :bawling:
We're Mindless running ego eaters.... :bawling: :bawling: :bawling:

Rob(back in my cage) :lol: :roflmao: :lol:

I think Mike is coming over to GOMOC tonight. I have to wait and hear back from him.

Yeah, you'd better get those EP's tested, or one day you might open up thier boxes, to find they crumbled to dust.
Time does that to stuff...... :bawling:

That simply means I got dibs on the donation..... :lol:

Hope it stays clear. CSC shows some high clouds moving in. :confused:

I spent some time in the Optical shop, and did some gouging of my 18" blanks center.

I got everything set up for tonight. I want to image tonight.

I'll post pic later.

Good luck.

Bad news.....You see that white grouping on my CSC.....That just made landfall..... :bawling:I went outside, and sure the heck...enough, I got clouds all over the place.

And they're heading East, pretty fast actually.

Looks like you might have some later this evening. By their speed, looks like they came out of Seabeck, to here pretty fast, and I got em completely over me now, and they're heading your way. By the time it gets nice-n- dark, you aught to see em. That's unless the sound thermals slows em down.

Dang...Dang..double dang... :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

Maybe it's caused by the temp dropping.. It might clear. The CSC shows em.

Well if they don't blow off...I'm throwing in the towel. :mad:

Rob :mad:

Wait a minute.....That white area on my CSC is for Saturday.
Then why do I have all these clouds.....

Looks like they are moving from the North, going South. So maybe They will clear.

Were still clear here and the scopes out cooling down. I just got home and I have a few things to do before viewing.
Hope the clouds you sent will hold off for a while.
