I’ve been busy starting to do packing work and realize I have a bit more packing to do in front of me. I’ll be ready in time, though.
I’m looking forward to Stellafane, hanging out with fellow members of the Delaware Valley Amateur Astronomers, and learning about amateur telescope making (ATM). I already have two telescopes (10″ and 8″ reflectors) as well as three binos, so after I get a 80mm refractor, I’m done. But, I’d like to see how they are made.
I’d also like to try to pick up an 11mm Nagler eyepiece for mid-range observation (I have a 24mm eyepiece). I also have my eye set on a 3-6mm Nagler for really up close work, but that resides on my Amazon Wish List and won’t happen until after my next quarterly bonus.
I’ll have a bit more to post after this coming week after I go to Stellafane. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, check out this cool commercial for the Weather Channel about Cherry Springs State Park in the boonies of PA. That’s my next major destination.
