    I may get more practice.. Or I might not..
    I leave for Porterville tomorrow at 7 AM.. All packed with binocs, ST80 on
    EQ mount, full array of video equipment, etc. (Way more than I might need,
    as is my style)..
    Of course the boss man just told me I may have to work 10 hour days and that
    the superintendent is going to want to know why there is only two of us..
    I HATE jobs like this. I'm a 25 year + Carpenter who has a tough time
    completing an 8 hour day. If I have to work 10's, I may only work and
    We shall see.. I am prepared for high precision video or binoc / stopwatch
    observations.. You guys will be the first to know!
    PS.. Oh yes.. I am taking some tools as well.. :-))

    Notes: Appears to be running 1.5s late and 12' W crosstrack on 1049 elsets.
    (if west is below elset path at this locale). Attempted the NOSS 7's but
    murky skies still prevail here.
    Had to Laugh at Derek's comments on binoculars ;-)  I am also trying out
    some 20x80's and they take some getting used to.  I see many more "strays"
    than with the scope.  (Focuser on scope broke, cheap plastic gears but it
    lasted over 15 yrs). I just recieved a focuser I ordered with a two inch
    barrel and adapter for my 1.25 eyepieces, all metal. Hope to increase the
    scopes FOV with some new eyepieces.
