Tom, the tray light is resting in the inside of the OTA cabinet top. That is a nice outfit! We stayed overnight there in Canandaigua on our way to Stellafane last year. I love the upper end of the Finger Lakes area!

One of my favorite places.  Peaceful and beautiful. 

 

The lower end has darker skies.  The VERY best night I've EVER spent under the stars was at the southern end of Canandaigua Lake near Naples.  The sky was SO dark I swear the Milky Way cast shadows (OK maybe not, but it sure seemed like it).  There were so many stars, a friend and I had a very hard time finding the constellations.  Easily MAG 6 skies with outstanding transparency and seeing.  It was my sophomore year in HS (so like a hundred years ago or something).  The following year we trekked to the Mees Observatory (of the U of R) and found only the caretaker.  He let us in, opened the dome and tried to figure the scope out.  When I was telling him what to do, he finally handed me the controls.  Only problem was, I knew it had electronic focusing, but I could NOT find the control for it.  I had near total control of a research 24" scope in my hands and just couldn't figure out focusing.  I had the pointing down.  It has DSCs, which was totally cool at the time.

I'm locking this, it should have been posted in the Ads thread.  As it's the first post, it becomes a chore to incorporate it all into the Ads thread at this point.

 

Please folks, don't start a new thread for ads, otherwise the entire forum will soon be nothing but ads.  Keep them in the correct thread.  Thanks!
