How are you positioning for the weekend?
I think I'm gonna bust out my Celestron scope for that
check out those prices, thats when the $ could buy something, before fairy boys could start a coupon biz and make billions doing something thats been around for 100 years.
of course these are probably a lot cheaper now in absolute terms.
Mine is a CPC 1100, which is an 11" schmidt-cad, much like the 10" scope in that first pic above. I paid about $2,500 for it new, but unlike the ones above, mine has built-in GPS alignment and a motorized mount that keeps any object you want in the viewfinder at all times. No more manual effort just to keep something in view.
Here I am with it:
Do a bit of UFO spotting, eh Baron?
Nice to see you've upgraded yourself to dictator.
this just in, he had a hair cut.
Strange, looks like Barons's scope is pointed towards a bedroom window rather than the sky
Well, you may spot a "moon" in such a circumstance.
Gives new meaning to the term "moonlighting"......
