Changed the oil and filter in the LS today. Took about 1/2 hour for everything. Worst part always is finding the filter, lol. Long reach in and up. Once found, no problem. The right hand works best through the right wheel well, no panels to remove, just wheel. Used Mobil 1 15W-50.
Different subject, also got the telescope running with a new alt drive. The old one slipped a little when tracking. Hot to trot with the new astro cameras once we get some clear weather, which for Seattle may be in a couple of months, lol.
Also watched the liftoff of the Falcon Heavy rocket. Simply spectacular, and an absolute scream to see the Tesla roadster in orbit. The simultaneous landing of the two side boosters back at Canaveral was also spectacular. Too bad the center booster had an engine ignition problem which caused it to crash at 300 mph on the barge at sea. However, simply a great show, and glad Elon Musk is being successful in competing against the mainline companies and NASA, even if NASA is also a customer. Musk spent 500 million at least of his own company money developing the Heavy. He and SpaceX are bringing excitement back to the space programs, as we used to have back in the Apollo days.
