  1. The old Southern plantation park/monument looks lovely. Good show as usual.

  2. Regarding the RBN measurement comparison that was done at two power levels... The results are in dB, which are logarithmic values, so it is not valid to average them. You'd have to convert to linear values first, then average the linear values, then convert back to dB.

  3. PTFE Spray (dry lubricant), your telescope will glide the heavens. Nemesis of anything that squeaks or sticks when it shouldn't.
    Great show as always Bill, thanks.
