    Thanks for the reply. I previously had read your review and found it quite useful as it was based upon your two years of experience with it. I'm looking to purchase sometime in mid June when I get back from vacation.

    I don't know where you are at in Michigan. Our club is having a star party in Vandalia, MI (south central) the weekend of May 31th - June 2nd 2019.

    I saw this on the internet a few days ago, and thought I might come. I'm in the Kalamazoo area and it's about a 30 minute drive for me.
