Here in western Washington state, it snowed most of the day yesterday. No accumulation at my place but nearby areas had 20 cm and the mountains had a bunch of snow. My wife got to enjoy it while skiing.

Mount Etna

Although I have only seen from the decks of the USS Truxtun CGN-35 in 1986 when we were in the Med, it has become one of my favorites because of live cameras the show the frequent summit eruption at the New Southeast Crater.

Bob, I don't recall where you live other than back east. If you are anywhere near Connecticut, you might want to check with Jim Ross at Absolute Clarity and Calibration. He sells Meiji scopes and does repair work. You might want to contact him about your problem. I and others have found him very goo...

SONYNUT I do use PS CS5 although I am probably one of the worst users of it on the planet. The color shown is very close to what one would see under the microscope, I just checked again.

ChrisR My source for the MSH material has been active in the research on the minerals found there. For the difficult to ID one the provided samples or similar ones were analyzed.

Harry, I never had the chance to collect there. All of my material has come from Laszlo Horvath who has been very active in collecting and mineral research of MSH material.
