Last thing I bought was a 2" 35mm eyepiece from FLO.

The last thing I've made was a resistor type dew heater for my Telrad.

Next thing I would like to purchase would be one of those micro focusser upgrades for my Dob.

Next project for DIY? I'm mulling over the idea of making a dessicator plug for my Dobs mirror cover.

Just looked up a Telrad Pulser, as I've not heard of that before - looks like a really good idea - add it to the list!

My latest astro purchase probably is a new roof for the Obs :) Proved its worth a couple of nights ago when it suddenly started lashing down with rain :D. I was able to just grab it and slide (once I'd moved the scope out of the way!), whereas previously it would have entailed rigging up the pulley system.

Next purchase is an auto dob :evil6: (possibly tomorrow :))

well I have finally purchased a scope!

I have a 200p on motorised EQ5

Haven't tried it yet, as its a bit of a beast, and i find it a little scary!

at the moment, the box and bits and bobs fills my shed, so i'm off to a popular chain of DIY stores tomorrow to try to get a container to keep it near to the house so I can have a gander through it!!!

and Mat, how big is a 400P????

Canon 7D (2 weeks ago) and today a Canon 100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS USM to go with it which will hopefully arrive tomorrow so I can play with it this weekend......

At least this fits in with my move from Dedicated Astro to Multi use equipment...

will it fit into your car then mat?

He'll have to have it poking out of the sunroof, like some crazy stargazing tank.

I recently received my new motorised EQ5, Revelation EP set and rigel finder from FLO :)

My teeny tiny telescope looks even teeny tinier on the new mount, it's a beast. :(

Now I yearn for a GOTO HEQ5 with a 200PDS, this hobby is terrible!

I am starting to worry about this new hobby of mine

i havent even started yet, and it seems to be a big monetary drain!
