    Nice, John! What a great scope you've got.

    I suppose you could always hit them all again with the 102...

    Thanks Bryan! I've taken shots of about six different things this week alone. (it is a bit addictive...) I will indeed be going after some of these again, especially M106, M104, M81, M82, probably more. I let Sky Safari lead me around from my easy chair while I run the scope remotely (via USB cables).

    I have a near term bucket list too that I especially want to go after with the ED102. Those include the twins (M81 & M82) and the Horsehead and Flame nebula. I've never really grabbed good shots of these four in tandem in my opinion. I also want to go after the Witch Head, NGC 1909, which is near Orion. I may even take a stab at Barnard's Loop....

    Some of my favorites will be on my list again too, though I may revert back to the SCT for these (Fireworks and Tadpole galaxies).

    Thanks for your encouragement along the way!
