Last night my son Bruce and I went to a Skyscrapers (www.theskyscrapers.org) members night. This was the first time that I had an opportunity to get to use some on the telescopes at the organization. Dave Huestis gave us instructions on how to get the 8 1/4″ Alvan Clark ready for viewing. I was amazed on how easy it was to rotate the roof. We then went over to the 12″ Meade and were given a quick lesson on how to use that scope. Jimmy had his TMB 130 on a G-11 and Dan had his 15″ Obsession with his Ethos 13mm. This was about the 5th night in a row that skies were good for observing.
