    Peter, it is good to see you have returned to SGL but it is disappointing to hear it is to promote an Orion Optics ODK in a new OTA that you are retailing. It is unfortunate you did not first contact us to discuss your intentions. We will leave your thread here with our compliments but from here onwards please post as yourself. Post your images, discuss astronomy and offer advice to others when able. That is the SGL way. Please use your website for advertising
