Tom & Bernie,

Reading all of this thread, no one actually commented on your marvelous
feat. Congratulations!

I know how difficult this is to do even with a dark sky with NO moon using
only a Telrad, no setting circles, no Go-To's, etc. I always seem to miss
one or two of the early setters, M74 & M77, or the late riser M30.

I do agree with Mr. Coe, this is absurd observing!!!
