Semio Steve is bringing out the Mallancam to use in one of the observatories too!


Scott - please give me your impressions of the Mallincam; I just ordered one from Jack and it is supposed to ship next week... I plan to use it with my XT10i and an EQ Platform for some outreach work at my kids school this fall... (keeps their grubby eyelashes off the Ethos that way! LOL)

Wish I could be there

Clear skies for your shindig!

PS: when smoking brisket don't smoke it for the full 12 hours, and make sure you don't use mesquite ;)

Will do Dave. I was just out at Steve's a week ago and he was very enthused about what he'd gotten so far with it. Color and detail in 27. Central star in 57 plain as day etc.
My guess is it would be sweeter with a bigger chip. It's equal to about a 7mm EP so obviously bigger field with shorter FL thus more targets.

I sure hope you catch at least a little break in the weather this weekend. Although, I'm sure it will be fun no matter what the weather does. :)

:bigshock: They'd be throwing me in jail if I tried to dress like that! Ain't no danger of me trying it, no way no how. :noway:

'sides, compared to temps down here, it's dang cold up there, I'd freeze my tushy off!

And just look at the CSC I'm leaving behind...the sacrifices I make to be with my CN family... :grin:

Per this post about locking and restarting the long threads, we're locking down this thread now and starting a brand new one.

Having the Last Chance Star Party this weekend at Scott and Diane's is the perfect way to kick-off the new thread -- I'm sure there will be plenty of posts and pics in the next few days! :D

The new Ohio Never-Ending thread can be found here. :)

Chat on (there), folks! :cool:
