    If they ever show up with C8 and you run into problems with Nextstar mount you can always put it on your ES T1, fits like a glove

    Great outreach and report Bryan, Glad Stubbs did not get the hump and just went on zombie guard. I sometimes wish some of my neighbours would show a little interest I maybe then be able to persuade them to switch there dam search light of security light off (New Townie neighbours still frightened of the dark)

    Thanks Simon! Yeah, I wish my neighbors would take an interest too. Sometimes I can see them looking over as I'm setting up while they walk past. I always wave at them and they wave back, but only rarely has anyone even asked what I was doing.

    Of course, the sight of the big yard cannon sitting there may incite a "don't ask, move along" attitude.

    Hi Bryan. A superlative combination observing and outreach report from you. I am sure that Blake and his family appreciated the time and kind work that you did. This is one of the best reports that I have ever read on here, and I am sure that so many more folks, who know Blake and his family, will later spread the great work that you started here. Thanks for a great report Bryan, and thank Stubbs for being supportive too.

    Thanks, Marshall! I really appreciate the kind comments.

    You know, I had a brief thought that word of last night would get around work and a bunch of people would begin approaching me for astronomy training. But then I thought, you know, I could charge $100 per session and save up for some new gear.

    Just kidding. I think.

    Always glad to help out a budding astronomer, and will always to do my part if I am able. It's good to pay forward what I've got from those who've helped (and continue to help) me out here on the forum. I never got a "real live" person to show me the ropes. Just my good friends and mentors here at AF.
