Stool.jpg

A two legged stool. Milking some cows any time soon?. How does it  even stand up.

Ha ha! :)

I'm only on chapter 1 of Using the Force For Dummies so can't make things fully levitate yet, hence still needing 2 legs.

That shadow must be keeping it upright acting as a support to the rightmost leg.  :icon_scratch:

Just a basic laptop but surprised at how nice it is for the price. Doesn’t feel cheap and everything moves along nicely.  Won’t be doing any image processing with it. Just for capture. . Will save to a micro SD card.

I think you'll find you need to use an Ha filter (7nm best) to bring out that third leg! 😉

I have been drawn for years, but I have finally arrived! It's an ASI 178MM - I hope it will serve me for EEA, lunar, solar and planetary duties, and in a few months it will snag the DSOs mounted behind some Canon primes!

It's clear blue skies right now, I can hardly believe it....

Decided to treat the mount to some upgrades.

The leg on the left doesn't even have a shadow. I'm thinking that the photo was taken with the same camera as the Moon landings.

My ability to douse keyboards and mice with coffee/tea means I always have Trust or Advent ones...

I found this really nice miniature handmade model of a 19th century Comet Seeker 4" refractor,  made in the USA by Barry Crist.

It's made from solid wood and brass, and the mount can move in various directions.

See here for more info on the maker:https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/427023-barry-crist-models-are-finished/page-2

Just lovely craftsmanship ☺.
