    Clear, Dark Skies
    Thanks John! A star party of one.

    My boss' boss is coming by tonight. His boy has a scope and doesn't know how to use it or the first thing about the night sky. They swing by tonight and take a look at some stuff through my scopes and I'll give 'em a little tour and hopefully explain some basic concepts to them to get them rolling along. Should be fun.

    Sounds like they've got a C8 of some configuration or another. At least, "it's 8 inches and it's orange".

    Don't get your hopes up... they might mean 8 inches long. Maybe it's an orange spyglass.

    If all goes well it seems like a promotion is in order. Always enjoyed spending time with my boss's bosses in the past.

    With my luck I'll have one of those coyote freak out nights and Stubbs will turn on her 4-wheel drive and climb up on someone's head. It'll all go down hill from there

    Hi Michael. Bryan just got a promotion. He is now a Super Moderator. You just go Bryan. Thanks Michael, Bryan, and all for this fun thread, and the best of regards.
    PS - And since I live here in Florida, and there are so many folks here who speak Spanish, I am finding it necessary to work on my Spanish now too.

    Bryan,

    Lovely report mate,

    I hope you realise that going "the full monty" means getting all your clothes off, eh? That's where I thought your report was headed for a moment That certainly would have been something for your neighbours to behold!

    Alex.
    It's me, down to the last rusty bolt.

    They make the same pay! But, the work is much harder. Tell us about it Bryan. You know that we all love your great work Bryan, and we are all happy for you on this promotion. Go forth now, and conquer the mysteries of the night skies, without fear of trepidation from man or beast. I am with you on this bro. (However, any skunks involved are different matter ).
