A First Light Report from Joshua . . .

Joshua sent along this note about his first light event.

First light luckily coincided with a shadow transit on Jupiter and the GRS on view. Both jumped right out at about 100x. The seeing quickly went south, alas (we have unsettled weather this week), but it was a very promising view. I think the primary kept its collimation on the journey, and with the help of a film-canister collimating tool I got the secondary very close to perfectly aligned before going out. Pictures when the weather improves. - JR
