Hi My name is Steve, and I'm a scope-a-hollic

thats awesome! Is that new scope? I haven't noticed that in your stable before
Thanks Rob--but I guess the kudos should go to Mark at Teton who did all the work. I just paid the bill!
Not new--I picked up the scope on AM earlier this year. A part came loose during shipping and put a coupla' scratches on the tube which prompted the new paint job. Mark suggested adding the vents when he had the scope disassembled so in my mind it was a no brainer to give it a try. I've only had it out a couple of times but they do seem to help.

"On a night of very good seeing I really got to see what my MN-56 could do. I ran out of power with my 5mm TMB planetary and a 2x barlow giving 305x, 61x per inch, and if I had a shorter focal length eyepiece I'm sure I could have went higher. The views of the Moon and Saturn were just stunning, razor sharp with lots of contrast. I also looked at Mars, and even though it was about 3 arc seconds in size at that time, I could still detect a polar cap."
Hope that helps,

Really nice shot!
They all look like they mean business!

I had a mini star party at my house about a year ago.
Nice shot! But from the looks of that scope collection, it appears that maybe it was the scopes who were having the party and that you might have been there only as an innocent bystander!
