Hey all,

Greg and I got out to the Purcell Observatory last night for a few hours of viewing through the 10″ dome scope.  I was impressed by the clarity of the images in a scope that has set idle for as many years as this scope has.  M42, M82-81, M78, M97 and others all looked really good!   The scope is a little hard to point, but we will be working on that.  Also it tracks beautifully.  We have more work to do out there, but the place is looking pretty good.
