    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. :D

    Here I am with it:

  6. Do a bit of UFO spotting, eh Baron?:D
    Nice to see you've upgraded yourself to dictator. :cool:

    this just in, he had a hair cut.
  8. Strange, looks like Barons's scope is pointed towards a bedroom window rather than the sky
  9. Well, you may spot a "moon" in such a circumstance.

    Gives new meaning to the term "moonlighting"......:D
