Don't worry Chris, Frac Pack moral is very high Here are a few of mine, past and present. Will take some better pics soon. Vixen Atlux 150ED with Tak FC-100 as a finder 120ED with Quark Tak FS-60

My Equinox ED120 & Starwave ED80 getting a rare outing.....

Just a selection of my refractors. The piers are self welded and far too massive to lift. For decades I longed for Fullerscopes mounts. I started with a used, driven MkIII and then bought a drive

its a sort of telescope that you can set up in 10 mins look at stuff in great detail and tick off 10 or so objects by the time you've got alignment!... :evil:

This should give palpitations, to those who think that a double stacked Solar scope
is no good for visual.

Well here it is, with Bino viewers also reducing light throughput..... :grin:  :grin:  :grin:

Just had to include no.1 son waiting for the eclipse. The very epitome of early morning style. Somehow you can tell he's a graphic designer and an artist,

The 66 was lovely, I've only just found a suitable replacement in the Tak 60. It was so small and yet very capable. Took it to Tanzania on safari and it performed like an 8" at home!

Last one is actually a rocket launcher, designed to destroy dobs ;) ;)

Here's our herd.......

Prinz Astral model 100,  Zeiss Telementor, and our Sears 6339-A which is presently out at sea on a freighter headed this way.

What a great set of scopes, I would be happy with the finder from the last one and for once the images on the side of the box dont lie.

You just have too many fracs. They take up little room and don't have fussy shaving mirrors. It's got to be a frac!attachicon.gif

The Telementor is my favourite, and is all I need. The other two will be looking for new homes in the near future; I really need to downsize.
