Subject: Astro report ETX Sent: Sunday, March 12, 2006 00:16:00 From: Jan H Kolst (firstname.lastname@example.org) Report from Norway 4 Mars 2006 I've been staying in the mountains for a week now skiing and observing. Here I have my ETX 90 which I enjoy very much. It's been very cold at times .Tonight -22 Celsius and the ETX 90 worked very nicely. It slewed to M42 watching the "trapes"(the four stars), Saturn, Mars, the Moon. Due to the tough weather conditions I had to give in after an hour because I was freezing. But I was impressed by the scope performing so well in such conditions. I think it's safe to say that the ETX 90 in the mountains HAUKELI 850m above sea level(59.45 N 007.22 E)nearly coped with the ETX 125 which I use in the city (Haugesund 59.25 N 005.17 E) where the light pollution is much stronger than in the mountains. Anyway I had a fantastic vacation in the mountains skiing and amateur observing. Much of my experiences I owe to Mike Weasner and his brilliant Mighty ETX and I'll also like to thank Oceanside photo telescope where I bought the ETX 125. Regards Jan H Kolstoe Norway
