Thanks, Dave! Happy February. Here's hoping for a quick glimpse of Mercury by month's end!

Wow, very cool. I checked out some of his other vids. He does a solid breakdown of Steve Lukather's "Rosanna" solos. Talented guy, ad I love his Ernie Ball.

AWESOME! As a self-proclaimed child of prog, this is, for me, one of the greatest songs of all time. And Gilmore's 8 measure solo at the 2 minute mark (original Pink Floyd studio recording) is, IMO, the best recorded melodic solo that I have ever heard. Anyhoo, this guy is talent plus. I very much e...

Oh yeah! Love Leo! Love Too Many Zoos! Been listening to him (these guys) for a couple years now. Thanks for the post, Gene, I hadn't seen this!

Thanks for the Mitsky-pedia entry, Dave! Kemble 1 caught my attention, never heard of it but quick research suggests a lovely, unique string of stars. Will have to hit that one once the full moon (and snow storm) passes.

Your list always keeps me focused when observing, Dave. I have so little time to actually get out, that having your top ten DSO lists at hand is incredibly helpful. As always, very appreciated. :smile:

Glad you liked it! My daughter, I believe, was the one who told me he was an Astro physicist. Quire a while ago, actually. I can't verify at the moment, maybe it was someone else. But yeah, composes the bohemian rhapsody, and studies zodiacal dust. What else is left to accomplish at that point?!?

Sounds logical, although I should have clarified. The primary was fine, and I do have a fan to keep things moving there, so no freezer needed. The problem was with the secondary and eyepiece. I think they need heat to combat the aggressive drop of the dew point.

Continuing on the Star Wars theme (R2-D2 in 2015, Jabba in 2016) this year I tackled the quintessential Imperial Stormtrooper.

Nice. That must explain why the contrast is improved. I guess I'm not a dolt all of the time. :cheesygrin: I've certainly read about the concepts of stacking with AP, several years ago, but definitely lack any real experience. I've done a few single frame long exposure shots...that's pretty much it.

Wow, much nicer tendrils in the nebulae with that second image. I don't understand what you mean by dropping two frames. Are you saying you took more images last night, but two of them didn't come out? And you added the good frames to the old batch to increase dynamic range on M45? Just guessing her...

Winter must be on it's way, because I'm getting the bug to design and build again! This is my sketch for a possible configuration. I've been playing with lots of details and attributes, and this is the design that seems to appease all of my senses. 10" x2 should be about as bright as a 14" scope. 12...

The new truss connections are rock solid! And actually quite a bit easier to install in the field . Very happy with the end result. On the second night of testing I was planning a long session, but was thwarted by dew. I don't get too many nights without a breeze, so it's typically a non-issue. Howe...

Wow, that sucks. Time to recoat, I guess. I'm thinking I will need to recoat the 12" mirror soon, partial oxidation, some tiny fungus spots. And since it's a GSO mirror it could probably stand a refigure, too.
