Hello my CN family!  This was my first observing session since my transplant 10 months ago. It was short and only viewed the moon but it was like looking through a scope for the first time.

 

Today is the best I've felt and still have a long way to go but its a start. It was rough setting things up and next will be the 1972 C8 which is the garage on wheelie bars so it should easier.

 

 

BTW I've lost a good 90 lbs. the hard way but its a good thing for sure.

 

 

You guys have helped me more than you knowwaytogo.gif 

 

Rolo

Glad to see ya back jack.  I have a feeling that 7" AP will be out before you know it.  Wished we lived close by as i would come and help you get the scopes out.

You look great in the picture...and even better with a telescope at the ready...

 

With progress like that, can a trip to Annapolis and the 1857 Clark 7.75" be far behind!

 

all the best, John

Thanks to the CN family for supporting someone... like me who never met Rolo

 in person but felt his presence when he gave his experiences on the topics we love to hear. Like in the hymn.."One day at a time sweet Jesus".

I can pretty much sum this up for you. Ever go to a star party?  When I go, I meet friends that I've talked to quite a bit online but never met in person. We pick up just like we've lived next door for years.  That's what these sort of support things are.  Friends we just haven't met yet in person.

 

 

And Rolo, you look good man!!!  Whatever you're doing keep doing it!!!

It is great to hear that your recovery is progressing well and see you out with a scope.   You have a pretty large rooting section here at CN!
