What a list I could make...
-Models, started with planes and moved onto cars
-have a modest collection of die cast cars ad bikes
-Raced karts, motorcycles and cars both on and off road
-wrenched for pro rider/racers and race school
-Built street legal (well barely) 2 stroke cafe racers
-Collected antique weapons including but not limited to black powder flint locks, cap-n-ball and early cartridge long and hand guns. Also edged weapons.
-have been a member of numerous car, motorcycle, music and antique clubs
-Tried my hand at photography both nature and motorsports
-Played in a garage band in high school, almost made it big...
-Have a small collection of acoustic guitars for finger style playing including an OMI wood body Dobro and a custom built harp guitar
-have an extensive collection of movies and music on multiple media from vinyl and VHS to the latest Blue Ray.


I know I'm forgetting a ton of stuff I've been into over the decades.

It's a 10" newtonian reflector. Specifically mine is an Orion XT 10. Go to www.telescope.com. They're a great company to deal with, with a very liberal return policy.

As for power, max usable magnification for visual observing is around 500x. Those pics above were taken at around 1400x, but that's because I use some software to post-process them to sharpen them up. Each of those pics is an amalgam of around 2000 individual frames, stacked together.

One of the guys I work with has a mini observatory in his back yard. He just moved so he has to pour a new pad for it and a separate pier for the telescope to sit on.
