Steve, If Nature really is perverse, as a physicist/family member once told me, we should all get together and pray and dance for rain. Clear skies and good seeing might well ensue. It can't be worse than what we've got. The 10th and 11th of Dec sound good to me. I have learned already that the NP101 is considerably sharper in the center than the TV85 I had was, and that is a surprise. I got, but expected better edge sharpness with the NP101, but who looks at much at the edge anyway. If an object really is interesting, we move it to the center. We want rain. We want rain.
