I am struggling to focus enough to read all of the posts of this ancient thread. LOL! That is a seemingly random question...of which I actually have no answer. I have ordered from Agena in the past with great success, but never actually talked directly to Manish. Always heard positive accounts, thro...

Sadly I missed Hale-Bopp, hadn't been bitten by the astronomy bug quite yet. Nor did I catch Hyakutake. For me this rates as one of the better comets, but then I was able to catch it on a dark moonless night where brightness estimates ranged between mV 2.0 and 3.0 among amateurs. The shape is classi...

Sorry man. Maybe you'll get lucky and catch it as it continues to linger and slowly fade. Should be doable with bigger binos, or of course a large scope for the next month at least, just maybe not as bright. I did see it again last night in so so transparency with the 15x85. and at an estimated mV o...

What a great night! I have to give credit to my older daughter for bringing this comet to my attention a couple weeks ago. When I researched the track it seemed this weekend would be ideal for us to catch it, post perihelion. As an evening comet the timing is more conducive to everyone’s schedules. ...

Erik, have you seen it yet? I just caught it with my family in the back yard. It's actually in a perfect spot to view for us. Clouds were beginning to move in after sunset so it never really got particularly dark before the clouds took over. That said, we were able to see it with a clear dust tail i...

Thanks for starting this thread. I’ve been patiently waiting since last week for it to be an evening comet. Much lower horizon for me to the west and no moon! Fingers are crossed the clouds move out...!

This isn't brand new, as the current trend of dimming was noted back in October. Still, this is worth posting for posterity's sake. FWIW, I considered placing this in the Cosmology forum. I listed it here instead because you really should be getting your tush outside to look at how dim this star has...

Interesting concept. I don’t doubt the possibility of anything, but this one seems like pretty far stretch to test. It will be fascinating to see how far the testing can go to verify or disprove the idea.

Love it! I actually always enjoyed Madonna's writing from that era, and the punk vibe sounds like the way this song should have been produced in the first place, LOL. Nice work Erik and ladies!
