  1. Apologies if the sun vanishes for a while - my new Lunt arrived and is now unboxed and ready for use - hoping for some sun this afternoon. I got the skytee 2 so I can have the TV85 alongside with the Baader wedge. It'll be interesting to compare viewing through both scopes.
  2. Hello, I hope this is the best place to post this... I recently acquired a Sky-Watcher Explorer 150P DS and an HEQ5 Pro to go with it and couldn't find that much information regarding what was actually in the boxes, to know if I needed to buy anything else, etc.. So I made this unboxing video so that people can actually see what the boxes contain and get a bit more information regarding the kit. Bear in mind that this is my frist unboxing video and that I don't have any intention of being a know-it-all... I just want to share information with people out there... If you find these helpful I'll continue to do these (since I'm waiting for the arrival of an eyepiece and a Barlow, otherwise I'll just stop... Cheers
  3. Well, I've gone and done it now. After dithering about a new scope, bouncing between aperture, exotic glass, weight, type, suitability for photography and so on, I finally decided a nice apo in the 4.5" - 5" category would be good. So what did I get? Notwithstanding sensible advice to the contrary, and having read many and varied posts about the potential pitfalls, I've bought a TAL 125 Apolar. For a bit of context about the madness of this decision, check out this review of the Apolar by John back in 2011 - http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/104408-tal-125r-apolar-apochromatic-refractor/?hl=+tal125%20+apolar. Now, I already own a TAL 100RS, a fantastic cheap robust and optically excellent 4" achromat, albeit somewhat indifferent in finish. I also own a TAL125r, a 5" achromat which I had to import from Italy, and which reuired the attention of a proper optical engineer to get it to give reamotely near its best. Also indifferently finished. So why have I exposed myself to the ups and downs of yet another TAL adventure? Simple - I've hankered after one since I read John's review, And recent reductions in price by OVL (presumably shifting stock) meant that I could get one new for around a third less than the standrd price (c. £1k as opposed to £1.5k). Ordered from Widescreen Centre on Thuraday evening, and arrived today. So on to the unboxing... . Obligatory stickers in Cyrillic shots The contents in a rather nice wooden (pine?) box (as opposed to the rough weapons crate my 125r came in); https://farm1.staticflickr.com/716/23095706913_bf1e81b63e_c.jpg[/img From the Instruction booklet, serial number 0165 and acceptance date in August 2010!: More to follow.

    11 5th Box

    From the album: Unboxing Ceremony

    This album is a photographic record of the assembly of my new telescope, right from the point of the boxes being delivered to the scope filly assembled.
