I think this constitutes cruel and unusual punishment. I mean I would probably consider giving you lifetime indentured servitude just to own the guide scope on that monster. We can all dream but there you sit with a Cheshire cat smile as well you should. So where do you go from here?-smile!
BTW that is an interesting design for a Observatory. I have not seen anything like it before. Who manufactures it? Seriously thanks for the photo.

Come on Markus, that is just a bunch of card board tubes you put together, right? wink
Ok, Ok, I got jealous for a moment there and lost my head! smile
Really nice Markus, how was the first light anyway?
