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.  

Just arrived and amazingly well packed... triple boxed, with spacers 😮 Nestled inside was a gorgeous Takahashi FC76-DCU 😃 I can’t believe how light it is compared to the StellaMira 80mm, and

All the way from Sweden and deposited on my door step by the courier three days earlier than expected - As it was palleted and weighed almost 70kg, it was left out in the rain until I got home from wo

For my 12" dob... A new 16mm Nirvana EP, an Aero ED 35mm EP and the dob mirror itself back from OOUK having been recoated.  Nothing better than brand new Hilux 😍.

Refurb of this 20yr old David Lukehurst dob is almost complete!

Forgot to take pics of the EPs 🙄

There is another picture of one of those fancy observing chairs/clothes dryer things. Is the wheel on the front so it can be pushed into the garden for observing?

Ooh there are a pair of these under the tree for me! I've been permitted a very quick look through them (have to do a quality control check on delivery, of course...😄). Looking forward to being allowed to use them properly.

I've bought the 20x60 version of these to get back into astronomy and they're excellent... enjoy 🙂

I received my SharpStar 94 today, a replacement for the ED80. It’s very similar focal length, 517mm, F5.5.  It’s clear tonight so hopefully can start a thread on it later.  The 0.8x reducer should have been here but alas it wasn’t in stock (despite being listed as several in stock) so fingers crossed it arrives before Xmas

Thanks 👍🏼 Scope from FLO, but they dont list the reducer so suggested purchasing elsewhere. It was dispatched yesterday from 365 so will be tight if it arrives before Xmas.

Well guess what it came yesterday!  The weather was clear very briefly last night between heavy heavy showers so I did get a test shot too

A Omegon flip mirror recommended on here. Tried it last night and it's fab one of my better buys. Can't go to the pub fatal mistake of browsing the FLO website and they have the AZ GTI mounts in stock, so why not. Hopefully makes it a little easier to find what i'm looking for. Finally a 40mm eyepiece from a chap in the for sale section. Suppose i should advertise a few items myself as i now have a few neglected items.

Didn’t think all would arrive before Christmas after ordering last weekend, Covid-19, the back log on the mainland & then having to cross the Irish Sea. 182mm tube rings from Microglobe, 11inch ADM dovetail & other items from FLO, handle from WDS & M8 -M6 spacers from Fleebay. Now to fit to my SW Mak 150 & flock the inside at same time. Well done to all suppliers & Merry Christmas to me! & all on SGL 🍻

Bit narrower fov than the Hyperflex but still a very nice zoom.  Comes in handy for a bit of solar observing.. 👍🏻
