Yes Randy, billions of galaxies with billions of stars in each and possibly trillions of intelligent civilizations. The vastness and beauty of God's universe never ceases to amaze, as it has ever since I learned as a little boy that, in the words of the old science fiction novel, "The Lights in the Sky are Stars".

This hobby is worse than AV, I've changed my mind again, now looking at this...basically the same optical tube assembly, just on a dual fork altazimuth mount versus a german equitorial.

Ahh, "The Rock" - no prisoner was ever proven to have escaped from Altazimuth.

Oh, they escaped. The question is whether they survived.

So you're saying it's the San Francisco prison? I thought he meant the Harry Potter prison, with the floaty dementor guys that symbolize depression.
