My very first refractor, the new WO FLT 91, this is going to be my imaging telescope when I can get my hands on a Skywatcher mount.  

Thank you FLO, I love it Mr Bresser Messier was just delivered now.    

Finally got 5 minutes to open the box.... packed in the usual lovely way of Takahashi 👍 As a complement to the refractors, providing a bit more aperture (and focal length) when required... a Taka

Got a nice Lunt wedge with filters from Moonshane that got delivered yesterday by the postie. Had first light with it yesterday, but nothing much to see on the sun. Nice and sunny here today again, so going to have a peak again to see if I can see any solar activity again soon! :)

This GPS Module came for me.

And what a fabulous aid it is!  Alignment is now really quick (planet, Moon, two named stars), AND if I kick the tripod or want to move the set-up down the garden, re-alignment is again quick and easy.  

Next? - a better focuser for my ST120.

I'm waiting for him, won't be the postman, to bring me my Skyshed Pod. Hopefully it in a container on a ship in the Pacific somewhere.  

Still waiting

Might help in finding a few doubles (stars that is)

Nice one, John (@laudropb)!

Here's a pic of mine wearing its semi-permanent self-centring adaptor - my nine longest FLs are all 2", or dual, or have these adaptors so they all go in and out of the 2" diagonal with ease.

Rain? - I just hope it stops before the nights get shorter and lighter!!
