Rudely Awoken!!!


Recommended Posts

How could you manage a lie in when a new scope was arriving. I was up at a stupid hour for my delivery yesterday because of my excitement.

Kids at Christmas morning have nothing on me:D

And I bet that murphy's law came into play and the delivery turned up at 5pm :(

My shiney new SW 250pds and a New 6 Synscan man I'm finding it hard not to just empty all the boxes onto the floor. Must resist..... Must...... Read manual.... Aaaaaahhhhhh

I wasn't sure what day it was arriving hence the lie in :-)

Actually, I was fortunate - it arrived about 9.30, so I had all day to put it together and make sure it all worked (mechanically). Of course, I will have to wait until after the obligatory 2 weeks of cloud before I can check it out optically.

Thinking about it ... it seems a lot of people are buying atm, so this could be good for us all ... all have the 2-week period together rather than having them spread out over 2/3 months (+). Or doesn't it work like that?

Epic fail on reading the manual it's assembled already :icon_scratch: the only photos I took were of the ota and head assembly but here they are. Going back to read the manual properly now :D The ota is easily managable on and off the tripod even by myself all the weight is in the head even without the counter weights its a big heavy lump but still manageable. I just want to say a big thank you to FLO and especially Martin for his help and advice the service from them has been first class. They went out of their way to ensure that I could get this scope the week after xmas thank you very much.

Wow! A 'scope and mount so powerful, they even defy the Law of Gravity and attach themselves to a vertical stone wall!:D:D:D

Have fun - once Gravity restores itself to normal...:(
