Wide shot of the whole setup.
MoonLite mounted on the scope, MoonLite Camlock 68mm adapter screwed onto the 2.5″ drawtube, and the QSI683 inserted, with the Hotech SCA field flattener on. Lodestar atop the camera.
50mm illuminated finder, MoonLite and QSI.
Shot of my ESXi 3.5 cluster. Two HP DL 360 G3’s. 4G RAM each, dual CPUs. Yes, those are Diet Coke cans. Can never have enough ventilation/air space.
Shot of my ESXi 5 cluster. Three Dell XPS 720’s. 8G RAM, quad core each. Each box is connected to a 24-port GigE switch with 4 GigE ports per server.
Shared storage. A nice little QNap TS-259 Pro+. 2 TB raw space mirrored (RAID-1). iSCSI over GigE to all 4 servers.

The first real computer game I played was ‘Adventure’ on a PDP-11 in 1982. Not counting Atari, Pong or anything I hand-type into a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A. Adventure of course later became Zork. And for the record probably my favorite game is NeverWinter Nights 2. But, the first real online game (MMORPG) I played was Origin’s Ultima Online beginning during the beta in 1997. Here’s a link to a bunch of screenshots from the guild I was in with some online friends. Funny stuff. Click the screenshot below to link to a site one of the guildmembers built. Classic. 🙂
Shortly thereafter my main game was Star Wars Galaxies. Here are some screenshots.
I did play EQ and EQ II a bit, and WoW as well, but never got ‘hooked’ on those. In 2007 turbine beta’d Lord of the Rings Online, which has been my main game since that time. It has quite a mature player base, which is one of the main reasons I like it so much. Click the screenshot below to go to my main set of screenshots.
14.8F – the coldest I’ve imaged in so far.
Twin 27″ LED monitors, two mice, two keyboards running to the main Dell. Works great. Got the DigiTech GNX4 and the Rig Kontrol 3 right at my feet. Much better than before.
I did as much research I could on this thing. My best guess is 1890. Made in Boston, that much is clear. No idea what it’s worth. Works perfectly.
