  1. For a long time i have been banging on about getting a different scope, but i feel i am more than happy with my present line up , so it will stay this way for the foreseeable

      Frustrating isn't it? - had my scope out barely 5 mins before it clouded over last night!

      Still an Alfa - Giulietta this time - gone back to petrol after my excursion into diesel ownership - and just as diesel is cheaper than petrol for the first time in years - doh!

      Same here. As it went dark, I got it all aligned and then clouded over within 30 mins. Went inside. Looked out when I went to bed and it was totally clear, so nipped out with my bins for 20mins :), so not a totally wasted night.

      Nice one Jules. I spent a couple of hours with the TAL125r, and bagged a few doubles and a smattering of Messiers. Actually spent more time with my bins, looking at the double cluster, M45 and so on. Good night :)
