The last wish is very appropriate. I started e-mail talks with Ron   
Dantowitz
(spaceman@tiac.net) in December, and got quick replies. I have now
received the package, but we've had lousy weather, and it appears to
continue until the moon gets back on the evening sky.

I don't own a Meade, but a friend of mine and I have been promised to
borrow one for a week, and I think this justifies the purchase of the   
program !
I will let you know later if our results agree with this optimism.
