You earn a taxable income Jeff??... Rule#2 - you're a semi pro. For all we know, you could have recently purchased a 12.5" RC and are writing it off on tax as you're using it as a tool for teaching.

So what are your thoughts on this Jeff - as a legitimate astronomer with public outreach? What category do you truly believe you belong too? How do you think the situation should be remedied?

Thanks for joining the "proposal board" by the way. Perhaps we'll now get something done.
