    Ahhhhh! Friday! :D

    Not that it matters much--I'll be working most of the weekend. Two jobs don't leave much free time and we're approaching the end of tax season, so we're all a bit frazzled around the edges.

    It should be light enough to go outside in about 20 or 30 minutes to survey the mess from last night's wind storm. Hopefully, it's more mess and less damage. And I hope that my bulk trash pile isn't scattered all over creation!

    Hey Chris, I know you are excited Mate! New scope, big apeture?

    Sorry about folks working the weekend.

    I was hoping to play golf tonight at eh mixer at Bide a Wee golf course, but that ain't happening. Rainy here too but at least is is warm(er).

    I think I want to go and fight the throngs to see Monsters and Aliens with DW and DD (if she doesn't blow us off to be with her girlfriends or boyfriend).

    Sitting here listening to Disney stuff on the planetarium's sound system awaiting the return of the broken main computer. Supposed to get here soon. I will have to do a McGyver on it and get it up and running.

    Cool I'll send a rubber band 2 toothpicks and a paperclip - can you do lase shows at your planetarium Dan?

    The scope ( if it has been sent) - is a 9.25inch Shmidt Cassegran OTA to stick on my Equatorial guided mount to do some decent lunar planetary and small nebula work

    just hope it comes :pacingsmiley:

    I've had a stressful week so I'm relieved that Friday is here. I'm going to spend tomorrow with my feet up and many episodes of Charmed. :D

    Sweet! I purchased a SC scope for the district recently. Has the goto functions but no equitorial mount. Really quality optics though. We also got a few hundred Galileoscopes for the district to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy. They are pretty cheap, but have really good optics, better than old Galileo used now 400 years ago. We will use them this year in the district to get as many eyes on the skies as possible.

    Here is the one I got for the district: Clesestron

    Here are the galileoscopes

    The C6 is great mine will be the 9.25 version but just the tube as I said

    Do those gallileo scopes have anyway of mounting them on a photographic tripod?

    I really hope this IYA gets more people interested, probably 50% of the people I have spoken to and got to look through my scope or shown the phots to have started to get interested and many have purchased scopes. I genuinely think if more people knew how much you could see of our neighbouring planets even with a tiny scope they would get hooked.

    I sound like some crazed preacher
