Re: My other hobby...
Years ago, over the course of a summer, I rented a full manual newtonian 8" (iirc) and positively WOWED my friends by giving them a fleeting glimpse of saturn as it flew across the scope lol.
Then I upgraded and rented a decent Schmidt - Cassegrain on an equatorial... I started to get hooked but feared the $lippery $lope (plus I live in the city).
Looking at your own little personal Mount Wilson, I'm glad I gave-up when I did! :P
