What did the postman bring?

Recommended Posts

@JamesF like the dew band.
I have a number of W&W Astro bands and all work reliably and well.
Barbera is a pleasure to deal with.

Not the postman but DPD from FLO.  Heavyweight and very strong, this should do what I want. 😀

Hello. 
Delivered recently. Stellarvue RACI. Saw on ABS and could not resist. Nice addition for my Stellarvue SV 102 ED. 
Has come with a nice clamshell but have resorted to a ring set up as no adjustment available if clamshell attached to a RDF block. 
Happy chappie. 
John

Very nice indeed @Telescope40

For me, a lovely Zeiss Telementor II arrived from the one and only Roger Vine of scopeviews.co.uk fame.

It is in lovely condition, with the sliding optics focuser which, if anything I prefer over the Telementor I I had before. It has a 1.25" visual back on it so I can just use normal eyepieces with it which is great.

I shall try to hold onto this one!

Stu, you sold a whole load of amazing kit (and nearly put FLO out of business before Christmas) to buy a whole load more amazing kit? Do you think this strange behaviour will continue? Hilarious laughing face emoji, as I can't find emoji options on my laptop.

"What did the postman bring" nothing again! Waiting on my 18mm BST and a filter. I was expecting the BST latest today but no joy.

I am keeping a happy face about it, but crying on the inside 😁

Actually I am still in very positive cash territory so all is well.

Received this week - 6x 9volt 700mwh rechargeable batteries and a charger - reserves for my homemade 'dew zappers'. Delivered in snug fitting brown cardboard boxes. Small but nice!

Am awaiting the delivery of an 'embossing press' that I can use as an intaglio printing press for up to A4 size etchings. It should arrive on Monday.

Just received my Dioptrx for my 2.75 cylinder problem. Just need the weather to change. I really do hope this will change my viewing. Thanks FLO.
