Seriously, I stayed up (then again, I'm often up late).
Dude! You know what a Dobsonian is! Love to introduce you to the CSAS, although I've only tinkered with joining myself, and you're not in Colorado, so...
I spent months helping a teacher grind a lens for his scope back in 1977-'78. Just an 8", but lovingly hand-ground, and laser-polished to exacting standards by a friend he had in the industry. Another friend (I didn't know it at the time, but this guy was very well connected) measured his primary and ground customer objectives.
His was also a Dobsonian, and after hours of looking, we saw more things floating around Jupiter than were supposed to be out there. Now we know there were more things out there than we could see.
