    Gratz on successful outreach! Also, always good to get on your boss's good side

    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.
