Thanks Jason! It’s a fun song to play. And I agree about Madonna; she had some great songwriters. When I dissected the chords from Borderline, I was really impressed with its thought and structure.

I’ve got a 32mm Baader eyepiece with an odd plastic adapter that snaps on to the top for added eye relief. I think it’s for use when employing a Barlow but I’ve never gotten much use out of it. Nothing to do with this thread really but I was just reminded of it so I had to chime in. Now back to norm...

Yeah it’s really interesting to see the effects of light pollution when it’s laid out on a map like this. And what happens with certain communities etc. Fir example, my town has around 6000 residents but the light pollution dot is smaller than a nearby town with 2000 residents due to the off grid na...

Went completely vegan about 6 months ago and began counting calories. I’m always pretty active but has a habit of eating lots of cashews, chocolate, and other high calorie foods. Since I’ve started counting calories and keeping it under 1800 per day, I’ve taken off about 15 lbs. I probably want to g...

No problem, Jason. That being said, when I was showing different eyepieces to my boss (who’s not an astronomer) so we could choose the best ones for our tours, he was totally blown away by the 17mm ES. He thought it was more impressive than the 17 Ethos. The ES does have incredible eye relief, maybe...

No difference I can see in terms of edge correction. I prefer the Ethos due to the smaller eyelens. The ES feels more like the 26mm WO UWAN where it’s this huge piece of glass you look into. Amazing eyepiece so just personal preference. ES is also heavier, I believe.

Holy crap! Yeah when I feel cold I just think about the entire rest of the country! I’m mainly using Ethos. I really love the whole line. For our work tours. We bought the ES 92 degree eyepieces and the excellent eye relief is great for the general public. But I personally prefer the more intimate f...

We’ve had some amazing skies as of late and I took advantage the other night. SQM read 22.14, though it was chilly 54 degrees. I must’ve spent a half hour on M42 with various magnifications and filters. A few other favorites like the Double Cluster and M31 were of course mandatory. My collimation wa...
