    Hi Kenneth. Some very nice artistic work from you here on your first attempt. And these were produced from the images that you saw in binoculars too. Well done Kenneth, and thanks for sharing these with us.

    I liked this headlight I did a review on quite some time ago. Still using them batteries last a pretty long time!

    Best red headlight so far.. brief review...

    Old thread please don't post in it... thanks.

    Oh I gave the free whistle to my wife! Thing is LOUD!

    I use something similar to this to clip onto clipboards or star atlases. They free up your hands.

    I found this one on amazon for roughly same price which is nice since I have prime. Should be arriving on Sunday if they accurately estimated! This should make things a lot easier so thanks!

    I really want this too so I put it on my wishlist to come back to. I appreciate the link and I'll be getting this one later so I can have it when I start lugging the telescope and lenses out again. Thank you!
