Nice job on the observatory! I was looking for a leg spreader for a scope I inherited. I just ordered one! And, I was surprised to learn that I live about 10 miles north of you -- half way to Lampasas.

Great! Glad you found it useful. Sadly I haven't had time to do any updates with AllSkEye, but what I have works fine for now.

Hi. I lost the tripod spreader for my CEM60, which appears to be the same as with the Celestron 1.5/2" tripods. Anybody have one not needed? Thanks.

You might check on Cloudy Nights. I sell a 3D printed replacement that's improved over the Celestron leg spreader. https://blog.orionranchobservatory.com/product/delta-leg-spreader-for-celestron-1-5-tripods/

I generate 3-D star fields using only an ordinary camera and using photos taken a mere minute apart. How can I show you a sample?

Hi Michael, I came out to the star party this past Friday and chatted for a while with you and Bobby. Thanks for the great info you guys provided on the sky and giving me the opportunity to look through the scopes. You have some fantastic astro pics on your site here. Absolutely love them! I'll make it back out to another star party. May even bring my scope out. I utterly love this stuff!
