Head-Fi'ers should get JMT stuff that he'll probably need, like more soldering iron tips, extra drill bits, a nice workbench, etc. In other words, give him gifts that are really for us.

CAME OUT LIKE A BANDIT!

I must of been a good boy this year, because Santa was good to me. I got a computer, new leather jacket, and a citizen watch. Oh yeah, I also got a ton of CDs.
Merry Christmas!

Since I discovered HeadWize earlier in the year, just about every week has had a little bit of Christmas in it for me. So I didn't ask my wife or kids for anything.........after all, I just got an iPod and iMac last week. But they sprung for some stuff anyway:
The Sopranos Complete 2nd Season DVD
The Godfather Trilogy DVD
Doctor Zhivago DVD
Doctor Zhivago Soundtrack (vinyl)
Empire of the Sun DVD
Thirteen Days DVD
a wallet.........unfortunately, not much to put in it because of this site!
With all these DVDs, I'll now be forced to upgrade my 19 inch TV to one of those big babies!

What kind and size of scope?
Audio Redneck, it's a Celestron NexStar 4.



This is my first telescope, and I don't know too much about it. It is a Maksutov Cassegrain type, with a 102mm lens. I was using it earlier this evening, and it produced a very good image of the moon, revealing many craters and a lot of surface detail. I like it very much, but perhaps I will one day get something better.

Great xmas for me. My X-CaV2 arrived on Dec 25th from London. And working in a Buddhist country was a benefit because the post office was even open on Xmas to pick it up! It's a thing of beauty to me at the moment. I popped in my vintage Amperex/RCA tubes practically from the get-go (heck I paid so much to import them, you KNOW they were going in) and, oh yes, it sounds mighty fine for my first dedicated heaphone amp for my HD600s!

Only problem is now I'm itching to treat myself to a new CD player to match it. Hm.... 3 more hours until the mall closes.

Oh yeah. A very cool gift from my wife was the DVD of Moulin Rouge. It's the coolest DVD I've ever gotten. Cool extras and a really hip design.

Merry Xmas

Hey, Joelongwood, I bought these for my mom.
The Sopranos Complete 2nd Season DVD
The Godfather Trilogy DVD
Great minds think alike!

I got the usual stuff from my parents (clothing, self made cookies, mordillo calendar, after shave...), who got an Acer Travelmate 212TX from me - and especially my mum really likes it. And now my father thinks about some wireless dsl solution... For myself I ordered a Psion 5MX - these are on sale on www.psionshop.de for 598 DM (~ US$ 250), now.

Greetings from Munich!

That's a nice scope! Point it at Saturn and I think you will be pleasantly surprised (It should be the bright star to the lower right of-almost behind-the Moon tonight and to the left of the Moon Friday night.)

Have fun!
