I was very excited to get my CGE back from repair at Celestron and as luck would have I got a good 3 nights out of 4 of clear skies and an old moon!
I was tough getting back into the swing of things, but I'm happy to have it back. The last night I split my time between the C8i SE (Orange tube on your Left) and the CGE with the DSO rig (White scopes on your Right).
As the haze and clouds began to build this last night I took off my DLSR from the white, DSO setup and had to pose as I was so excited to have both out and running at the same time.
I was sitting in an observing chair that I won from the SCT User Contest 2008 (http://www.darkatmospheres.com/contest/2008/). It's actually a great chair!!
Now to process all my data! :)

- Loving husband, proud father, computer geek, astro freak, music lover, sports nut and general fun-loving guyI think I'm the kind of person who doesn't like strong opinions. It doesn't matter if I agree with your opinion or not, it's not factual, it never will be 100% factual and I don't care for it. That's probably why I hate politics.I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me."A good friend once told me you are our memorywithout them we equal nothingAnd all I can see is the place I wanna beSuddenly my life was so freeLeaves at my feet, blown to the groundtheir echoes are reaching my earsNights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
