Many thanks for that design.

Craig,

Thanks for the background info. I look forward to reading more articles.

I hope my little gray cat is working well for you. She was a good kitty and deserves a good home. :lol:

Kit -- glad to see another LYBAR fan. It's always fun to have something so simple just plain work. It's also always fun when you can come up with a name that never fails to bring a smile ;)

Ron -- your little gray cat is doing well. It's a fine scope and I'm getting the spacing nicely tuned up for AP work with the reducer. I've made a buddy of mine promise that if I ever suggest selling it, he'll smack me. Quick test shot:

Hey Craig! Cool articles, even if it's still like another language to me. I'll soon send along a photo of the scope and some of the minor mod's I've made to it. Everything is holding together perfectly--you're an excellent builder. Good luck with the column.

Craig, Can't thank you enough for what you have done for the hobby. I would probably still be sitting on my couch at night relaxing if it was not for you and your software. Now I'm sitting in the driveway squinting at a laptop. PHD takes the mystery out of guiding.

Hey Matt!!

Great to see you here on CN. I see I'm about 55 posts too late to give the traditional welcome, but ... welcome anyway!

Gotta love CN here folks. Matt is a friend I thought I'd probably loose track of since I moved 2500 miles away. A big thumbs up to the great community that is CN for helping make sure that won't happen.
