      36, but probably looking at keeping the old APS-C camera for astromodification, if I can find someone who works on Nikons.

  2. Coma corrector just arrived in the mail.

  3. Scope is collecting subs, I'm listening to Wes Montgomery, drinking tea and watching the moon slowly rise over the fields.

      Yeah I'm testing a timer remote. I think I'm getting slightly eggy stars unguided at 90 sec, but I'll finish up this try at M101 first. So this is more a test run at longer subs before my coma corrector gets shipped.

  4. Clear skies? HUGE MOON? Binos!

      what make of 10x50 bins do you have. I am struggling with my 20 x 50 mark scheffler and am looking for something else.

  10. Not one clear night in 3 weeks. Feelsbadman.

      Yep - it hurts. Only clear nights I've had recently have been when my wife had booked assorted social events...with no opt outs!

  11. NEQ-6 just modded to avoid bent altitude bolt! Feelsgoodman!

  15. Can't wait for my Telescope to arrive!
