Observatory ALMOST finished... PICS

Posted By Andy Campbell

Ivan, Way to go! wink That looks just like my "arrow" observatory I had in Ca.
Looks like you have done an excellent job with the wall-roof interface. What kind of rollers did you use? at the rate your going I think you will be using it very soon.

Observatory Destroyed...

Posted By Andy Campbell

Ivan Im so sorry to hear about your disaster. I hope things are not as bad as they look and you are able to rebuild soon. Thankfully you and your family are OK. I would like to extend this wish for all in the affected area that things are back to normal soon and this is the end of this season.

Most expensive thing that 'seems' cheap

Posted By Andy Campbell

When I consider that the house I am sitting in (that is slowly crumbling around my feet!) is worth 400 g's. $120,000 for a 12 inch instrument of quality and precision doesn't seem out of line. But thats just my opinion and my wife says i'm completely insane! She gave me a hard time when I spent $4,000 on a beautiful new scope. Then she turned around and blew $1,200 on a POS vacuum cleaner. 8O

Just charge $1 per ad

Posted By Andy Campbell

How about an "Astromart use fee" payable with CC with a verified address!
I don't do many ads here but I live in the forums and would hate to see them go. So I would be willing to pay for the service.

V- Rollers

Posted By Andy Campbell

No Tom Your OK! wink
I have recently bought some cast iron V-groove castors from "Ace castors" in Irvine Texas. The price seemed good.
