POD & PZT Work

Posted: 17 February 2019

Clouds began appearing mid-morning on Tuesday, 12 February 2019. Rain arrived mid-day Thursday, 14 February, with 0.92" and continued on Friday, 15 February, with another 0.27". Cloudy nights are forecast to continue for awhile.

The local contractor did a nice job on it. This one should last much longer.

I have posted my review of the Meade StarPro™ AZ 102mm Refractor.
