Suzie did great on M13, she got the propeller without blowing out the central stars.

I'm really proud of the girl, and as I said, I don't miss the skeeters.

 

As I also said, I am slowly, ever so slowly working up a visual project, skeeters or no. lol.gif

I'm building a ham shack/scope remote control "room" in the corner of my shop...for the same reason...skeeters and the rest of the biting bugs.  I can't take them anymore.

 

So I'll be able to do some DX while controlling the scope/mount.  The Seestar appeals to me as a quick/light/fire and forget setup and I think I'm pretty much sold at this point. ;)

I did that for a while some years ago. Today? W4NNF is usually locked up with the Big Switch thrown by 2000L. I am rarely able to stay up until 80 opens up, much less sit out there and control the scope anymore.
