Hi Steve,

In a similar vein, I'm also always aware of the 6P rule: Proper Preparation Prevents Pretty Poor Performance. Of course, you can replace 'Pretty' with a more forceful word if you like :-)

I observe with a 12" SkyWatcher flextube. It's driven and has Goto capability. I spent 35 years as a star-hopper, and five years ago, I decided that I'd earned a Goto! Of course it never quite hits the right spot, and I find myself 'microhopping' to the right field. I suppose it keeps me in practice!

Cheers,
Patrick
