Use two hands to carry it to the scope - thats what I did when I fist got my 31mm Nagler :smiley:

Fantastic and congratulations. They don't come any better than that I reckon.

Do you need to sit on the end of the DOB to keep the whole thing balanced ? sounds like it :) I don't think I'll be buying one of those for the Heritage 130p any time soon :D

Nope - I just use a 2 lb counterweight on the bottom end of the tube when I'm using the heavy eyepieces :smiley:

That's a lot of weight, I don't think my flextube will be up to that LOL, Congrats on the eyepiece anyway Estwing, I am sure you'll enjoy it no doubt. This thread just made me think about the funny side, it reminded me of this picture, 2 minutes of the GIMP edit, my present to you. Televue will have to do, but you get the idea :D
