Last week Greg cleaned house and brought over some miscellaneous astro equipment including two refractors that will be popular as class loaner scopes. With the UMD outreach coming up in 2 weeks I spent a couple of hours assembling this rig. Can't manage the big SCT setups any more but I think that this is gonna be fun.

Greg isn't out of astronomy. He kept the scope he uses. And hopefully he'll drop by the May 6th event. My thanks to all.
