I got a used ED80 last week to use as a guidescope, but have been playing with it (with my Nikon D70 attached). This guy was playing hard to get.

Hi Steve, Very nice shot. These are very nice scopes. I have a Celestron 80ED and like it a lot, esp. the price I paid for it.

I was in Ft.Sill OK. in 1970 AIT there for the military.MOS 13A10- field artillery, don't hear very well now.:-) Had some clear skies there but no scope.

Regards,Steve

That's a really nice shot. I like the way you've got him in focus amidst all the cover.

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

Thanks, Lee. I kept hoping he would get in the clear, but no.
