Out with a new toy

Recently had some bad personal news so did what I usually do in these circumstances.....I bought a new scope

To be precise a Synscan 127mm Maksutov from Rother Valley Optics (no planned advert but have to say great service)

At last clear skies tonight so set up my new scope, used 2 star alignment, Regulas and Sirius as my garden is only any good towards the south (street lights everywhere else), really simple, five minutes and up and running.

Quick tour using handset for messiers and whipped through M46, M47, M48 and M50, followed by the Christmas tree cluster and the beehive

With 25mm and 15mm eyepieces I have to say the Mak was a revelation, great views and a fun evening

Looking forward to some great nights with this little treasure
