Putting the brakes on...

...the eyepiece collection for a while. We just bought tickets to Australia and the financial situation is looking a tad tight! Suffice to say, I'll need to be happy with what I have for now (which isn't half bad!) and concentrate on my current setup.

Speaking of which, I am getting nervous about the return of daylight savings time. Last year, my LX200 had significant GOTO issues. Over this winter and last winter, the scope has performed admirably, and has been a total joy. But last summer ther scope was about 2 degrees out with each GOTO attempt. I have constructed a checklist of steps to take which will hopefully lead me to the right setup as far as changing times and GMT offsets are concerned. We'll see how it goes.
