Cassie and my teenage Prinz 60mm refractor sometime around 1976 or so.  The Prinz had, I think, Towa optics and gave very nice views, I still have some of the sketches I made.  Both sadly gone but fondly remembered.

My guess is not, based on the look of it. I bet it was SYW, APL, of HOC.

You may well be correct.  My recollection was based entirely on something I thought I remembered reading somewhere - hardly a reliable source!

TIME for a reboot   so as not to hijack and sabotage the 60mm worth it thread which could easily have gone to the dogs

Sadly, my observing buddy of 8 years, Penny, passed away this week.

 

https://www.cloudyni...ssic/?p=9531439

 

She developed a case of bloat while in the kennel, and didn't make it to the vet in time.

 

We still have our new dog, Tahoe, but I haven't had a chance to observe with him yet, as we only recently escape-proofed the yard sufficiently for him to be able to roam around off-lead.

Sincere Condolences, Chip.

 

Tahoe'll get up to speed soon enough - he has an excellent partner guiding him.

 

I'll go take a knee, send some good energy your way and remind myself how lucky we are for the time we have with our fur-people. It's never enough.

Chip,

My like doesn't mean like.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Take care

Chip, I'm so very sorry to hear about Penny.  Your post today brought this thread back to the top, and I realized that somehow I missed it when it was started back in 2019.  But I've gotten all caught up and enjoyed all the photos of dogs, cats, and chickens that everyone has posted.

Loved this old thread          

 

In honor of buying back my 1990 FC -100 three weeks ago  (I had sold it a year ago when I sold off a dozen to buy the Starfire F12

I am posting a pic of the day I first got it     back when Hudson Buddy was just a puppy

He's a big dog now       but you can see his excitement when we opened the old wooden box and lifted out the Tak FC -100

Thanks for everyone's kind thoughts. Penny was one of those dogs who was endlessly enthusiastic just to be close to people. Happiest to be sitting on your foot and leaning against you. The sort who inspired the prayer, "Lord, help me to be as good as my dog thinks I am." The hard part was being away when she died and getting the 4:30AM call from the kennel, then knowing that we were not there for her. We're glad Tahoe had some time to learn from her, as he's also been turning into a great pup.

My four dogs out on the upstairs deck last night as I viewed the moon with my 1978 C8. At least one of them keeps me company most nights when out viewing. From top to bottom Bea, Shultz, Frankie and Fritz.
