Comments ... Faint, '6' on the scale of '1-6',,, 'nuff said. Woof!... What a bear processing.
... First Light with the new Starlight Instruments FTF-3545 and Digital MicroFocuser. Money "well" spent.
... Surprising the number of anonymous background Gx's being so close the core of the Milky Way. Many star chains.
