Thanks Ken, Mark and Robert. Do appreciate your well wishes.

Whilst I'm not pleased with the situation, I plan to continue my work as long as I can. Had purchased a Lunt 100 DS which will be arriving next week. Hope to fire it up in addition to my 12" Solar Newton and see what they can do. Too bad we're in a solar minimum.

Hi Bill

Your Solar Newtonian looks to be a superb example of the ATM'ers art.

I hope you get to spend some quality time with both the Lunt and Solar Newtonian.

Best Wishes
