After a wonderful response to the Labor Day On-line Star Party, I thought it might be interesting if the participants could post some pics of the equipment they used to produce those wonderful reports. Not being shy, I figured I would kick start this little effort.
So... "I'll show you mine, if you show me yours!"
All my stuff set up for the evening
