    Skywatcher told me over and over not to compromise or go for a low priced telescope. I took his advice and waited, saved up and finally saw the ideal unit. Now I shouldn't really be showing you it, it even says on the box it can be used for "top secret spy science" but anyway, here it is. So, Skywatcher, which planets and nebulae should I be looking out for tonight?

    Does the little red present sticker mean it was 3 for 2? What else did you get?

    I was in Smiths on Sunday and all their Science Museum was reduced to silly prices to clear. I got a plant a tree kit for 2 as they were all out of telescopes.

    Now I need to wait for the trees to grow so I can climb them and get closer to the stars.

    I have been personally assured many many times over the years that it doesn't, much like Father Christmas and the tooth fairy, all I can say is, I choose to believe

    At least the lens looks correctly made on mine

    You're all meanies and you will rue the day you made fun of my huge scope (oooerr). You'll all be telling tales of the day I whipped it out to show you when I'm on the BBC! (although possibly crime watch rather than sky at night )

    ps. apologies for the innuendo but as you know, there's a standing rule that any and all Skywatcher threads should descend into chaos

    You know, I knew that smarty pants but knew I was snookered either way. If I said mirror you'd have pointed out that my new scope didnt have any!
