    Nice! Is that the 140 F7 Doublet?

    Actually, yes, that is a plus. It is amazing how quickly scopes become unwieldy once you start strapping stuff on.

    Don't worry. In 10 years, all that plastic will end up either in plankton or washed up on the beach of Big Island anyway. It's a bit cheeky too as it does look like metal. I suspect that that was the look they were going for.

    Wow! That's really cool! I quite fancy that myself. There is even a levitating version.

    Also... a little something CMOS for some OSC live view gratification (to keep the visiting spectators happy). A full frame CCD setup will come in a couple of months to give that Tak wide-field something to do.

    What did the postman bring?

    100mm makes for a very portable setup. I already have scopes up to a 10 inch LX200 but of which are all far to unwieldy for me to enjoy Nowadays. My 100mm will bring back my enjoyment.

    It's a Takahashi FSQ-106EDX4 F/5 Petzval Quadruplet APO. A very wide and fast flatfield astrograph.

    Ooo. Look what Santa forgot and I've had to buy myself.
  13. Have you ever noticed that the seventh planet is virtually ignored in public spaces? When was the last time it got a mention on TV?! Aww... poor little planet. It's the butt of many a joke!
  14. Taken from 4th planet from the Sun. Unguided. Oh come on!! If I didn't post this, someone else would have!
