    ^^ I can appreciate your sons fondness for insects. I was 10 yrs old at the time (early 60’s) when I won a red ribbon at the KY Fair for my 4H Entomology project.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

    It is imperative that we recognize that an opinion is not a fact.

    Imagine making politics your entire personality.

    There's Danner Boots, very nice looking boots.

    Then there's Dehner Boots. Made here in Omaha. Different styles of boots.

    Holy moly. I'm good on spending what looks like up to $1,500 on a pair of boots. $300 is plenty for me.

    Do you own a pair of Dehners?

    No I do not. If I was in law enforcement, military, or a rancher/rider like 'ol Dutch, I'd consider a pair. :) I'm a slip-on penny loafer, tennis shoe, golf shoe, city guy. :)

    NGC 6814: Grand Design Spiral Galaxy from Hubble
    August 16, 2020

    In the center of this serene stellar swirl is likely a harrowing black-hole beast. The surrounding swirl sweeps around billions of stars which are highlighted by the brightest and bluest. The breadth and beauty of the display give the swirl the designation of a grand design spiral galaxy.

    The central beast shows evidence that it is a supermassive black hole about 10 million times the mass of our Sun. This ferocious creature devours stars and gas and is surrounded by a spinning moat of hot plasma that emits blasts of X-rays.

    The central violent activity gives it the designation of a Seyfert galaxy. Together, this beauty and beast are cataloged as NGC 6814 and have been appearing together toward the constellation of the Eagle (Aquila) for roughly the past billion years.

    The fact that Hubble is still out there doings it’s job has to make it one of the greatest technical wonders of all time.

    I am sure it says TOYOTA somewhere on it....
