When he gave me the box I said I think there is something in here for you. I gave him 2 of the 4 pizzas I ordered for a Christmas present. Manny is a hellava nice guy and an excellent UPS driver. He is continuing the legacy of exemplary service provided by our beloved Jerry who retired over a year ago after delivering to the Big Bend region for over 30 years.
Another indoor day so I played with the Meade LPI camera a bit and finally got it to work....briefly. Then the software crashed. Next - I broke out a new camera I impulsively ordered from Woot! a couple of months ago. A factory refurbished Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 14mp digital camera. Got it for half the retail price. Just out of the box this camera is dust free and I'm rather pleased with it over my old Canon G9. The Lumix even has GPS built in....checked it against my position on GoogleEarth and it was identical. Not quite as many shooting features as the Canon but it does have a wider optical zoom range....and there is no dust in it - yet. Photos above are unretouched strait from the cameras. 44,50,42,0,B
