A cupboard-full. And a barn-full, too! :eek:  :D

But tame. Very tame. I'd need to get a wide-angle lens (or 3) to begin to photograph my outlay. Or Google-Earth.....:p

Yes, I must admit, my collection pales in comparison to many others.

Ha, ha, love it both of you!!  I don't suppose I'll ever have more than one tube - I'm having fun and games getting to grips with just that!

Come back in a yrs time and say the same. Our 1st scope is NEVER our last scope. Having said this........if you do your homework and really know the pros and cons of a scope before you buy.......there is no reason why your 1st scope shouldnt be your last. 

If i knew 10 yrs ago what i know now about what scope suits my needs/wants........i would have just gone straight for the 8Se. I would have also bought my 70mm travelscope and Heritage 130P afterwards.

I would have forgone the 90mm refractor on EQ mount. Love the scope..........hate the EQ.

Scope-wise, i'm good. One thing i will never rule out though is a 10-12" Sumerian.

Less than they think it just stuff to mess with and stops you looking through the scope.
