I like Steph's counting, so two woo's till we get together for LCSP!

:woohoo: :woohoo:

(Although counting like this a few months in advance would make for a lot of graemlins and I've only ever seen Lenny use that many. :lol:)

seriously though, if the weather doesnt work for us, what are the plans???
show and tell ????
Im bringing a small photo album with some of my photos in it.
Not on par with Erikas and others , but theyre not to bad.
And if it gives us a clear night, would some one allow me to use a 2" diagonal and ep in my refractor.
Im debating whether to work some way to buy one of each, for the 102mm refractor or not.

Good! I'll enjoy seeing them though I won't have anything to show in return. I guess someday I'll have to get some prints made.

I should have a diagonal and eyepiece(s) for you to try if the sky permits. I'll have gear with me that I don't know how to run so I'll probably be mooching views anyway.

Aw, c'mon John! I find it hard to believe that there's astro gear you don't know how to run! :shocked: ;)

He's so modest!

Andy, I'm looking forward to seeing your album. I've always enjoyed your excellent lunar photos.

I won't be bringing mine unless I take the time to file all my observations and sketches into it from the past several months. At the moment, I've got a stack of loose sketches and reports on the floor piled with books and my ring binder. I may have to get another ring binder to fit them as the first one is pretty full now (It's a three inch binder).

Geez, nobody cares whether I show up so long as the Ethos makes it.:confused:

It's still in the box; you can have first light with it. ;)

Nope. Sure didn't. :smirk:

Oh no, it's going to be the who did what first. Need I remind you about the Andy vs. Di hug. (Stephy dear, TOS prevents me from posting what I'd really say, but I'm sure Erika would know exactly what I'm thinking. ) :smarty:

Yes, I do. It's like your brain thoughts travel in light speed to hit me smack between the eyes to illustrate the point. :grin:

Well, it's time for me to through out my trump card. A fresh apple pie goes to me getting dibs over Diane for a: first views in Lenny's new solar scope (Seems Di already beat me to the punch with Robert's new filters! :mad:) and b: first light with John's new Ethos.

And I guess I can through in my left with a promise not to take incriminating sleeping photos of those two persons if my wish is granted. :lol:

I don't use eyepieces much, either. That's why I usually choose ones that look cool rather than worrying about how well they work...

Erika, In spite of you tormenting me, I'll still give you that neck/shoulder rub this weekend. Even though, I just had my two cortisone shots in my hand today and just washed the bedding for your guest room and bought nice soft toilet tissue for you to use. I do all this for you because, well, I'm nice like that. :flower:

I don't remember for sure. I picked it up somewhere (cheap) because it looked cool. I'll bring some decent 2" eyepieces this weekend so you can try 'em.
