Dang! So I was pipped at the post with that one by a mere 121 years. Oh well, I'll just keep working on my pet theory that energy and mass are different forms of the same thing.

It's interesting what you say about the refraction of the pole itself. I hadn't considered that, and it makes sense that those further north would have very different levels of refraction as the pole sinks towards the horizon.

I also didn't realise that king tracking was a thing of the past, more or less. I use it on my Losmandy GII, more because I liked the sound of what it did, but maybe I shouldn't bother.

Thanks for sharing your extensive knowledge.

Cheers
