Mirror Cell Finished! And other stuff...

I finished the mirror cell recently.  I have not worked on my scope much because of other non-related activities, but hope to get some time over the long weekend to work on it some more.  I will post pictures soon.

In other news, this has been the nicest November I could remember.  I got out and did some observing with the 12" scope.  I visited Bill's house and spent more time looking at an object instead of just going to the next one.  I think I am going through a transition: it is about the quality instead of how many objects I can bag in one night.  I spent 45 minutes staring at NGC40 digging out all of the details I could muster.  I found it quite satisfying.
