Same here as Rick.

Got the new Explore Scientific DD127 FCD 100 Series. Have not used it yet due to weather.

Put an extension on my Losmandy G11 which is great because it really helps with Meridian Flips

Got featured by Universe Today for a day on Instagram

Got my website finished with forum and the ability to load really large picture files

Found out how hard it is to drive traffic to a new site

Bought some RODE Microphones for doing videos

Congrats on new gear and your website looks nice.

BTW, Google is dropping sites from their search engine if they aren't secure. Yes, MAI.com isn't secure either. Do I care? No. But, if you want your website to become available with a small chance of being served up, you may want to consider securing your website.

How much can you load up in the skyguider? Will it handle your WO 71mm?

Yep no problem as long as you use the DEC Bar and two of their weights. I just used it this weekend with my WO GT 71 and did not have a problem

Cool, I picked up a used WO Star 71 that I was hoping to use on it. Now just have to find a good deal on a used one.
