Re: 36-INCH TELESCOPE

Hi, Walt. Tom here. The 36 replaces the 29 that I've enjoyed for many years. The Luxury is that the dome is just up the hill from my house, rural "upstate" NY, where the skies are actually pretty decent... when not cloudy. That has made for a LOT of ideally-convenient observing from the dome, warehouse ladder, tables, books, wind-not, dew-not and all. My favorite objects are remote galaxies... hence Aperture Hog. Phil Harrington's COSMIC CHALLENGE has lots of challenging targets, especially the Monster-scope stuff. Sometimes I just randomly chase down every "little" galaxy in Uranometria and put a little pencil check by it and journal it. The 36 is big as I can fit in the dome. Other upgrades are GOTO, tracking, Night Vision, and better ergo. Should be great?! 1st light will be... interesting. Hoping for the best. I'll love reporting good experiences with this beast. All effort now is to configure it for Ease of Use! Picture of the "dome" here. Tom
