first light for a new CGEM

Manuel and Kiron arrived a short time ago.

Manuel had brought his brother-in-law. Introductions ensued. His name: Manuel. I immediately thought of the Monty Python "Bruce" sketch. "Well, that's gonna cause a lot of confusion..." We employed last name initials to keep track.

Manuel S had just bought a new 'scope. A nice sparkling Celestron CGEM. As I helped Ed T with lawn cutting, Manuel G helped Manuel S unbox the new SCT.

I was nearby on the Observing Pad when they bolted up the eyepiece had trained it on Venus.

First light!
