Breathtaking. It's just incredible that this is available to the amateur community.

I remember as a young teenager in the early 70's getting to buy some posters of the Sun, planets, and Messier objects at the Kitt Peak visitors center from their best telescopes. I was so amazed and inspired by these posters. The images that are routinely posted here blow them away.

I tip my hat to you and all of the other pioneers in our hobby for pushing the envelope so far.

You were right on with that one! Glad to see he found some decent seeing. I was wondering what he was encountering when I was having good seeing in his backyard. Ironic as I found the best seeing I had ever had also. The seeing along the lake is much nicer than what I have in the mountains of ny.
