Some driving from the Chicago area and stopping to visit friends along the way.

Arrived yesterday in Green Valley, AZ (visiting parents and looking for long term housing).

Had some time to assemble my scope set up and add the newly purchased Esprit 80.

Depending on weather (tomorrow or Wednesday), I will get ep's on and sync mount control to stars/time/etc.

For the C-8/E I brought the 13/17 Ethos and the 22 Nagler.

For the 80mm I brought the 4.5 Delos, 8 Ethos.

I also brought the MOD 3 night vision monocular. I already know it works on 80mm and I suspect it will also reach focus on the C-8/E.

Welcome to Arizona!  Green Valley has a nice year round climate and is not hard on the eyes either.  Hope you enjoy your stay.
