Unbeknownst to me at the time, this was the last pic I shot w/my AT80edt. Last weekend within a 24hr. period my 80mm was gone and it was replaced w/a AT111edt. By happen chance a person 20mi. from my house was selling the 111 and wanted something smaller. After a few emails and a trip to his house the deal was done, he had the 80 and I had the 111. I'm really looking forward to first light. Marc

T thanks, it's definitely going to be nice having more light grasp. I had a couple riser blocks machined to lift the scope off the d-plate and finally got them yesterday. Hopefully putting it all together today and getting it balanced out. Maybe clear around here sun. night?? Marc

I don't know what I like more...the image of the fact that you now have a 111 to play with!

Hey guys thanks. I had intended for this to be a project pic and keep adding time to it, but the skies haven't cooperated. Maybe next year. Marc

Really excellent capture, Marc. You've got some fantastic detail in there. Nice work man.
