Had a great time up on Palomar Mountain today!   The observatory was open but tours do not start until April.  I did get to see the 200in from the observation area though.  And I almost bagged two rice rocket riders on the way down!.

Due to downsizing, I am offering my Discovery 12.5 inch dob for sale at the bargain of 350.00. I need to move it out.

 

The good: excellent mirror as Kent can attest to. Comes with nice permanent secondary heater installation. Good 4 screw can type, not the orion three screw type. Good rocker box with nice Baltic plywood. Telrad included. Good movement with Teflon and real ebony star, not the new junk.

 

The downside: This is a big scope and a one piece tube (unlike my 18). So you need a healthy vehicle. No civics need apply.

Michael,

You really ought to add some text in your emails, and not just a link.  It looks like someone has hacked your email account.  Whenever I get a message in email with no text, just a URL link, I delete it immediately.

Ditto, I loved that part!

Cosmos

George Reynolds
 

I watched my recording of last Sunday's inaugural episode of the new Cosmos series.  It wasn't too bad.  My favorite part was in the final minutes of the show, when Neil DeGrasse Tyson showed the diary of Carl Sagan from 1975, when he gave 17-year-old Neil a personal tour of his lab at Ithaca, NY College, and gave Neil an autographed book, which inspired the man who is now head of the Hayden Planetarium in New York, and who has become a popularizer of astronomy and science, as Sagan once was.
