    Where they go to play poker in Atlantic City, only to find the same people sitting at the table they play with all the time back in New York?

    Let me pull up a chair...

    You're how I ended up here Shorty. I figured it was you when a google search produced your SV dissection here, I thought man that blue cloth looks somehow familiar...

    Oh right lol. Welcome aboard! I'm guessing that's one of my several Baader cleaning cloths.

    You were right about the Meade on the left, it works well at f/5. The 'Revelation Astro' above, like the dissected SV in the first picture, are rebadged GSO's.

    I'm actually looking for a 15mm Superview, I have the 20, figured I'd complete the collection.

    Glad to hear the Meade supers working out. They are a pretty good value.

    Thanks, I managed to view NGC 7000 with it last night. The 15mm SuperView is better than the 20mm IMO. It reminds me a bit of the 19mm Panoptic.

    Welcome, Don Alvarez. I kiss your pinky ring.

    (Sorry, I can't tell if that's your name, or your title, Godfather.) :p
