Jupiter 20091002

Yes, my C8i SE Single Armed Fork decided to take a break.  Ironically just after I got the CGE mount back!  The power wasn't getting to the hand controller just at the end of this session and the mount is on it's way to Celestron from out of warranty repair.  :(
Good news is the seeing was pretty good.
Not much else going on other than the Z-shaped / Zorro in the upper left!

Wish my mount a speedy recovery, The OTA will ride the CGE for a while... *sob* *sob* I'll have to one scope it for a while!  :)

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 memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
