    No but I'm lookin' at 'em pretty hard.

    Just a dovetail bar. That's only worth a slight sprinkle I think.

    Holy Cow Jim. You're living on the edge now. Let us know how this all works out for you. But, what the heck, I can tell you from personal experience, that you only live once. And, you should make the most of your astronomy hobby experience while you can Jim!

    PS - Don't tell your wife what I just said in the above comment or we'll both be in for it!

    We are experiencing drought conditions inland.
    I wonder if I should let them know a sure fire way of getting it to rain!

    Get out your kachina dolls and do a reverse rain dance. I think you have handled it well in getting some new gear. Minor purchase = less rain.
