Imagine the scene. I'm standing in Jack Newton's Observatory in Osoyoos with several other visitors. Jack walks in (in his slippers), asks me for my old Canon 300D and attaches it to the 7" Apo Refractor riding piggy back on his 16" SCT. Then he hands me the controler to about 1/2 ton of telescopes and imaging gear (hanging from them) and tells me to steer onto the Moon while he fetches a cup of tea. All for the price of bed and breakfast at The Observatory Bed & Breakfast. April 2006
