Well, after what seemed like an eternity, I finally have some semblance of a decent AP rig put together...



I nearly ran over about 5 people trying to get home from work to see my new camera and filters that arrived today. The retailer I picked the new gear up from informed me that he'd screwed the order up a little; he'd put aside 5nm filters instead of 3nm filters which I'd ordered, the latter being out of stock. Disappointing, but he assures me they'll arrive next week and…

I managed to get tennis elbow, and I've had to take over 2 months off - I think I'll be able to start getting out in the very near future, which is good, as I've probably forgotten how to operate my stuff at this point.

Absoluetly brother, you got one in mind you'd like to play with? Can give you fits out of maxim right after calibration and stack. How's that?

Moving? Coming to Hawaii, want me to pick you up at the airport?

Lol, no worries...just don't rule it out. The wife and I left the East coast of the U.S. 6 years ago...just sold everything and moved without jobs or anything...kicking ourselves for not having done it sooner. Different way of life. Great skies too...some of the best observatories in the world are here....on top of a mountain....but here!

Where should you move for good skies? Hawaii! Great skies when you are away from Honolulu...and it is not cloudy! On a good night, it is hard to polar align because there are so many stars it is hard to pick out Polaris! Of course being able to go to the beach year round helps too ;)
