Re: (IAAC) Self Introductions

My introduction:

Mel Bartels ---

Observing for almost 30 years; have two thick notebooks of notes and
drawings; observed and drawn all types of objects, but my interest is
most piqued by galaxy clusters through the largest possible scopes; I
currently use a 20" computerized tracking scope that at high powers
shows almost as much as non-tracking 40" at lower powers.
