  1. This happy group arrived today. GSO RACI finder for my C-8, TV diagonal because I needed a more robust clamping device for my binoviewer, ES 4.5 to go along with a small ep set for a short f/l 90mm refractor.
  2. WO has styling in spades, I've always enjoyed the aesthetic appeal of their products.
  3. Four-of-a-kind, I'd suggest. A great hand, in any case.
  4. I like baked beans, on occasion, but I'm having trouble here....
  5. Just delivered Wednesday. I generally binocular observe with 10x because I like going deeper than a 7x or 8x will allow, but sometimes recognizing starfields when searching for the quarry in my dim light polluted backyard sky can be troublesome with their narrower field. Some recent reviews on Kowa's 6.5x32 prompted me to try the 10° field they offer. Used them last night under clear, but windy conditions, my 10x50s alongside, and I am sufficiently impressed enough that the Kowas will be with me for any observing session. I think of the 6.5s as a "finder" for any higher mag pair I'm
  6. Nice! At least you can get one. I've been searching in vain for a 6x30 RACI finder for the past week, or so.
  7. This evening's transparency was better than yesterday's, but Saturn failed to reveal itself through the skyglow before the ridgeline interfered, alas, so it was a one-shot deal for me.
  8. I live fairly close to some low mountains (2500' ASL), so that Mercury dropped below my local horizon just 15 minutes after official sunset, which means the sky was quite bright when I first spied Jupiter through my 82mm spotting scope. I quickly scanned downward to locate Mercury just above the ridgeline, then hoped Saturn would swim into view before Mercury set. It did. I was able to see all three in my 20x wide-angle ep at the same time for a minute or so. Mercury will be higher tomorrow.
  9. I'd say you're about to go down the rabbit hole!
  10. I do no imaging, so my perspective comes from that point. I own refractors, dobs, SCTs, and one Mak (6-inch). I like using them all, and do, on different occasions. Each type has its own charm and utility. Best view of Jupiter I ever had was through my C-Nine-Two-Five.
  11. "niggles"? Could you translate that from english into english, please? Thank you.
  12. I've seen heat plumes in my C-Nine-Two-Five, but nothing quite like yours. Curious.
  13. Love my Vessel JIS drivers, too. If fact, yesterday I ordered a set of their Tang-Thru/Demolition models for the garage toolbox.
  14. This just arrived, to be added to a small ep set for use with my Borg 90FL, and carried in my Tundra for instant use while on the road somewhere:
