If you have not been back since 10.... you are in for a surprise. They have added on quite a bit. They were even adding more equipment last time we were there. Amazing stuff.

Ha nothing was even mentioned about it.

In any case... you really need to make a trip back over there.

A little over three months I'm going for it.....

The picture in reply #13 looks like the one I just got from my brother.   :uhoh
I wanted to learn how to play drums when I was young but I was hatched 6 years after Neil Peart; and he had bought them all by then.

That was really neat seeing your observatory build.

Thanks.  It was a bucketlist thing from when I was a kid and saw an article int Sky & Telescope about a guy who had built a shed with a roll-off roof.

It took around 25 years until I could pull it off, but I'm stubborn once I get an idea in my head. ;)
