    Waited all day Saturday and it didn't arrive :dozey: so we will be having something back from Mr Parcelforce

    It is a thing of beauty and I shall post pics as soon as I can, one I have stopped licking it

    Apparently my neighbours stopped the chap trying to hoist it over our side gate

    Careful... drool will make it take longer to acclimatize! Doesn't evaporate as fast.

    Its second hand but comes with a whole bunch of stuff

    Basically it works out at just under 2,500 worth of kit for just under 900

    It is a thing of beauty it is a 9 1/4 inch carbon fibre schmidt cassegran optical tube ( but you probably knew that anyway) - the white mount is mine

    Sorry the pics are so awful but for some reason the flash stopped firing





    My 80mm scope ( deep sky) takes in light at about 180x what your eyes do - my old 8 inch takes it in at 800x and this at 1200 x

    I will be using this for moon and planet pics

    I have to say that I may not have understood any of what it does and how it does it, but I will be happy to reap the benefits of the pretty pictures.
