    Excellent signature, Bryan!

    When extrapolating your hording activity, you will need some more tables, and maybe 1 or 2 more acres of land
    not to keep the growing equipment so crowded.
    So, in short text, I love it!

    That's a good start, but to make an episode of Hoarders, you will need a lot more scopes and a much wider range of quality. You need more old and grungy looking scopes to balance out the collection. I see some promising looking additional stuff in the shed that you probably thought was not pretty enough for this picture. The preponderance of ES eyepieces needs a few dozen additions to show some variety, and you definitely need a massive 24"+ Dob to cast a shadow over the whole display. Still, an excellent start!
