Well, it's been a great long while when I was able to touch any of my telescopes due to lousy work condition (I played hooky today of course - felt sick all of a sudden due to the transit ;-).

'Tis was great to use my trusty ole' pal the TV-102 Light Cup again! Due to being sick in the lenses ;-) with photo deprived fever, my Light Cup caught this image with a different sick twist ;-).

Also during a moment of Light Cup's sanity, a full disc view with my new Pentax *ist-DL DSLR camera (got it cheap from the Pentax clearance with rebate). No more film camera for me ;-);-).

Thanks for the images Ron. I also took off from work. Alas, to no good end - the clouds never parted here in NJ.
