Please don't remove the themes wider than 1024 pixels. Some of us have screens that can take full advantage of these themes. My own screen is 1680 pixels wide. 8)

I received my Tom Osypowski tracking platform just after Christmas of 2005. I purchased it after taking a look at a bunch of planetary eyepieces. I decided that a tracking platform would improve my planetary observing more than an eyepiece could. The platform has been a nice addition to my observing...
