Blue skies

Supposed to be clear skies tonight. Finally. Unfortunately the southern California fog has returned as well. Hopefully i can get a shot before the fog invades.

plate adapter

It's finally showing up this week, and it should be sunny this week as well. FINALLY, that took I believe what, five months? Can't wait to finally get it all set up and my system working. Lot of new upgrades that haven't been played with, MaximDL Pro, Moonlite autofocuser, pier, dome, USB hub cabled into the pod underground. There's going to be a learning curve right off the bat just getting everything going smoothly. Back in the game this week though!

Clear skies

Three to four days of zero clouds. New focuser, nut still no adapter plate to attach the mount to the pier. Talk about driving me insane!!!! Either way, stoked, have some cool toys to play with tonight.

Might have a new girlfriend guys and might cut into my astronomy time. Nit sure, keep you all posted, or not. Lol.

Hey were not techs and were not making money in fact were spending money for this site so we can learn, even if it makes me jealous of Jeff's setup.

We took care of rose, although i thought i had a chance, but she's now gone, and this won't be the last time we have a tech issue... But we now screen newcomers decreasing the likelihood of spammers.
