    Les,a nice setup but i really would go for a full length dovetail bar and four rings,which will stiffen up the tube and will give you so much less flex,even visual will benefit from it. Enjoy your new scope,it`s a beauty, Mike

    Galloway Autumn Star Camp 2018

    Hello All, sincere apologies for this late post, i`ve been under the weather. A big thank you to Lesley and Ralph for all there hard work, always appreciated,and what a surprise the field was in superb condition and was still in good condition when we all departed. A thank you to Phil and to Kenny and his wife Caroline i could not have managed without the care and help they offered. As always a huge than you to everyone who traveled to make the Galloway star camp Scotland's premier astro do under pristine skies, just wish a few more of the nights had been clearer, but i think you will agree that when the clouds do cooperate the reason for traveling the distances we do, is magnificent. Jim and Dawn thank you for your hospitality, and Ian always entertaining. David Martyn and their guest Tony always raise my spirits along with newcomer Calum who produced some worthy photo`s considering he is just starting astrophotography. Adrian for your endless enthusiasm i am always entertained,thank you. I`m sure everyone from the diehards to newcomers had a good time,and a thank you goes out them all for making the event such a success. Next year is our tenth anniversary and we are hoping to have a variety of talks food and of course whiskey tasting,if anyone can think of an item they think would be good just let me know,the dates for the do will likely be in November but i will post them soon. I really could not manage without everyone`s support,and for that i thank you Regards Mike
