Not astro... a twin-valve preamp for less than £8(!) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6J1-Valve-Pre-amp-Tube-PreAmplifier-Board-Bass-on-Musical-Fidelity-X10-D-Circuit/152894986169?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Very little gain apparently (about x2) but can be used to add the elusive 'valve sound' to other amplifiers, or as an overdriven front end for guitar amps.

A 3D printed case might be nice 🙂

A box 🤔

Perhaps containing a solarquest mount, or, if it's anything like Amazon, a 5mm UWA eyepiece :)

Yikes, I aint goin' into the garden after dark.....

( Thanks to FLO.    This is the big beastie of a TeleGizmo cover.   Big enough for a 10" Newt on an EQ.  )

In the spirit of compromise, the skies are only light grey! And it doesn't rain continuously.

It's a solid lump of a thing.

I've heard good reports of the TS flatteners. Altair advertise a 3 element 3" 0.79 reducer for the 102 ED-R but it's not in stock. TS do a 4 element version and quote the same backspace requirements. It also looks identical. Also a 2" filter drawer to put my IDAS LPS into the system and something I've been after for ages. A TS slim camera rotator. It's a lot sturdier than pictures suggest. No rocking or tilting once its tightened up. Well engineered. Can even remove the camera quickly from the train.

Great gifts John - Happy Birthday!  It was mine yesterday - got a Myriad 20mm (which arrived the day before), and a Revelation 2x ED Barlow.  And Orkney single malt.  Haven't we done well?!

Doug.
