Well, is now 5:00p.m. and I am tired. Had to do a bunch of honey do's today around the new home to get it up and running and now I am very tired and fearing I don't have enough time to assembly the scope. I am off tomorrow at 3:30p.m. and once I get home will see how I feel. If I'm not too tired I'll do it then, and if not then on Tuesday. Man, I have never had this much trouble finding time to build a scope. Here's an image of the boxes . . . I did get the shroud, the three portable bags for transport, an Orion Lasermate Pro (their new model with the Cheshire, I want to compare to my Glatter and my passive tools), a RA Finder, I don't like straight on, a Telrad and the collimation knobs for the secondary, and a 4 inch Telrad Riser (tried of bending over and cranking myself into un-natural positions. Sorry, my Astronomy books are to the right corner behind the image so your seeing my educational books, my Tolkien library minus a couple of items and some other personal items on that book shelf. Man, I have to cook steaks for dinner tonight . . . I want this thing together like yyesterday! I think no matter what, it gets put together tomorrow so I can give it a test run several times this week.
Oh, by the way, we inheirited a hot tub from my mother-in-law that is a nice one and its on our back deck. Were about 3 weeks from getting it setup and working but we realized last night that there is a second use for my light shields! Yep, if we want privacy we simply put them around us and no one, and I mean no one will be viewing in!
