Wow you must have a really good scope!  I can never see the names through mine  ;)

Nice shot though and far better than anything I have taken :)

Yeah, it was quite the feat getting the names and all....lol :)

I have a Meade LX90-LNT (8"); using the LPI with some tweaking in Registax.  Take care all.

Tim:

Are you a Yooper or just visiting.  I grew up in Escanaba and the rest of my family is still up there.  Are there any astronmy clubs up there with events planned in September or October?  I'd like to do a long weekend and enjoy the dark skies.

Hi Bill,

I was born in Iron Mountain.....grew up in Esky.  Have lived in Marquette, and Washington (the state); currently live in Wells (the 'burbs of Escanaba).  If you want to get together (I could take you to my in-laws place....fairly dark skies in Danforth) email me at tberthaume@yahoo.com

Have a good trip.

Tim

PS...I have vacations already scheduled for the end of September/early October and late October/early November....plus a lot of time I am on second shift.

There is an astro

Thanks for the info.  I'll call the club and let you know when I'm going to be there.  I dated a girl from Wells, but that's another story.

Bill,

Feel free to contact me.  "A girl from Wells" hey?  I hope I get a chance to meet you so you can tell me all about it.

Cheers,
