Wow, if only I could find places that would let me join for $1 a month. That is less than I pay for dues in our Astronomy club. And I don't really get a lot from the club for the money I spend either! shocked
This "IS" and Astronomy Club, whether you realize it or not. grin So what is so wrong with dues for member, if it is required to keep the club going?

ATWB buying and selling used on AstroMart

Posted By Floyd Blue

I feel that it is ok to do this, but I do have concerns that Anacortes might corner the market on any good deals because you have the money to buy whether you need it or not just because it is a good price. The it is offered again at a higher price. If a member does this he is labeled a "Flipper" and is looked down upon by a lot of people. He would also be considered a dealer by Astromart for doing this, but you are a dealer so I guess that it is just business.
I think it is a good thing but might make people feel that they are not getting a chance at the good deals available here.

I for one am happy with the way it is now. It works, so why mess with it. If people do not like it, they just don't have to come here.
We all know there are two sides to any controversy, I would bet there is more to the story that is being said about the loss of an account.

CED-201 or VDB-152

Cederblad 201 (VDB-152) in Cepheus, finally got more data this year, last was 2016 and not enough to make a good image. This time, I captured many features that I missed before. The bow wave at left and below the raging star with the bubble around it appears to be dust, but above and left are 2 bow waves of compressed hydrogen, that I picked up with the new data. Plus, there are a couple of galaxies, one in the upper head of the nebula.
Pretty pleased that I managed to get something to finish, it has been a terrible 9 months here.
