Thank you for sharing.  I hope to do this too for the public someday.   I've done a couple solar outreach days for my kid's school over the years and it is always well received.

Look forward to you sharing pics of your tak scope at outreach events.

Took advantage of clear spring night, brought out fc100dz on vixen sxp mount to adler's wednesday nite event.
Showed curious folks mercury, jupiter and comet 12p riding above chicago skyline.
the CAA allowed me to easily adjust to folks of different heights for more comfortable viewing.
One guest had a nikon dslr; i invited her to hook it up to my scope to shoot comet 12p as it was passing thru the antennae of willis tower.
 
look forward to more spring outreach with my collection.

spring break is surely here. 

adler planetarium sold out of tickets tonite to visit the musuem.

luckily no tickets required to show folks views of mercury, jupiter and comet 12P with small scopes outside.

 

we had a little tak attack, fsq106ed on em11t2z and classic fsq106n on p2z.

 

hoping more opportunities as weather warms.

What you do is great.  I visited Adler years ago and would love to come back.
