This is the project I plan to tackle.  
Not sure if this is over my head or not.  But I'm gonna give it a try.  For my 
Birthday my wife got me a Hakko 936 Soldering Iron and a Extech EX330 
Multimeter to start me out on my project. Still have not bought the parts yet.
Ultimately, I'd like to produce something that exceeds the capabilities of:
Okay, I know that won't be anytime soon, but it is nice to have a goal to 
shoot for.

I don't know if this is too difficult a project to start as a beginner or not, 
but I'm gonna give it a try.  There are a few features I'd like to see added 
to this project. One I'd like to see is a USB connected data logger that can 
record both ambient temps as well as mirror temps over time for each viewing 
session.  This I can use to compare the efficiency of my cooling system (fan) to 
keep the mirrors close to ambient temp and thus maximize viewing potiential.
