ST4 availability
#23
I like to weigh since I been using ST since v.2. 

I'm somewhat amused by some of the comments regarding the "waiting", allocation to a 'secondary citizen status', and so on when it comes to the long anticipated debut of v.4. My goodness! These lamentations are perplexing in light of what v.3 already brings to the table. I've been using v.3 (was a beta tester as well) since it's inception via laptop>real time>GoTo>Bluetooth to a Sidereal Technology controller for years and life has been good.  Smile 


I don't know how much better my observing or personal life will be when v.4 comes out. Honestly as long as my health holds up and I am under clear dark skies I'd be happy no matter. Even, gasp! if it involved pulling out my old copy of the Skalnate Pleso maps. Actually some of my happier times occurred 40 years ago when 'all' I had was an 8 inch SCT and star hopped my way around using charts.

And for any conspiracy theorists out there who wonder whether there IS a real software developer named Greg Crinklaw, attached are two images I took back in 2015. Granted they are just of the back of his head and mainly feature his hat. My wife paved the way for an introduction. She approached him and said: "Mr. Crinklaw, my husband Richard Carner would like to meet you". That's when I got to see his face instead of the back of his head.  Image #1 Greg and son at the Magdalena Ridge Observatory. [Greg, we ran into the astronomer that was the guide at a multiplex movie theater in Albuquerque a couple of days later. Weird!] #2 The Very Large Array National Radio Astronomy Observatory -- Greg and his hat again.  And my 20" rigged out with a platform & laptop. ST is running with an observing program set up.
