Clouds on the way

Recommended Posts

I hope so, but I'll be leaving it here, mabe the clouds will stay away from Lucksall.

It's definitely one for the DDM, I don't think the HEQ5 would have the capacity, given the length and weight.

Well, the delivery came:


And here are the clouds :grin:


Managed to wrestle it onto my patio table, with the 80mm f/4.4 for comparison. It's a bit of a beast!


Too big and heavy for imaging on the HEQ5, but I may, shock horror, put an eyepiece in it and actually *look* through it :eek:. Only to test collimation you understand :grin:.

I suspect the lenses all come from the same factory. The main structural difference between this and the AA one is in the focuser, which appears to be a more substantial 3.7" dia.

What the optical difference is I don't know, possibly QC.

Nice , if I can put my tak 106ed with the rest of the bits come out at 12.5 kg and the Heq5 love it. So I say give it ago. ps I got a new one this week and it was a nice night but still went to bed I think I like spending money.
