    Should have gotten into AP when you moved to BC. Three weeks of clear sky, the rest of the time its clouds or smoke! At least with AP you can look back at what you've seen.

    Oh, nice shots Bryan.

    Most of my friends at home do AP and they have been trying for years to get me into it.
    In 30+ years I have never, ever had the desire to as much as hold a cell phone camera to one of my telescopes.
