This upcoming spacewalk looks like it could be a bit scary and could involve electrocution risk to the astronaut. shocked

I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.

Hi Lee,
I watched a condensed version of the spacewalk last night on NASA TV. The tool the astronaut used to keep the panel away looked like a little hockey stick. He was working on the end of the stations Canadarm 50 yards away from the airlock which is farther away than they like. Fascinating. grin
