+ - H1B Records Being Destroyed by Feds

Submitted by Foofoobar
Foofoobar (318279) writes "On the tail of 100,000 layoffs by IBM, the Feds are deleting all long term electronic records associated with the H1B program. No reason was given and this would never have been noticed until the Labor Dept posted a note saying those records were no longer available. This directly inhibits ANY research on companies using these. What is the government trying to hide?"

Equatorial Mounts For Budget Astrophotography? 85

Posted by timothy
from the rubber-band-and-hope dept.
Timoris writes "With the Perseids approaching rapidly, I am looking for a good beginner's motorized equatorial mount for astrophotography. I have seen a few for $150 to $200, but apparently the motor vibrations make for poor photographs. Orion makes good mounts, but are out of my price range ($350) and the motor is sold separately, adding to the price half over again. Does anyone have any good experience with any low- or mid-priced mounts?"
