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.    

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

Two more eyepieces to add to the "minimal" set I had planned, that's now turning into two "minimal" sets 😮

Is it possible to have just one Ethos... please tell me they like living alone 🤞🤣

Wow.. you got the 13. You will love that one. My personal favourite. Whatever you put it in it’s fantastic. Welcome to the £600 eyepieces club 👍

the “cheap” ones not too bad either 🤣😂🤣

It’s already too heavy to lift. 🙀  When finished will need a hydraulic lift table to lift it up to work on it and ramps to load it onto the table. About 170kg when finished. 🙀

Well worth the effort. Good investment.

I did also get a chance to use it on Thursday night in the 10” dob and the views were indeed stunning. 

Having the extended field of view does make life easier on the dob, as stars were totally sharp and free of any aberration at all right to the edge (using Paracorr), which was incredible 😃

The Delos 14 was my most used eyepiece, so it made sense to go for the Ethos 13.

I’m very glad to have been introduced to ultra wide with your APM 20, so thanks again for that 👍

@laudropbwith the supplied USB charging cable ?

I just hook it up to a portable powercell.

It doesn't take too long to charge, and battery performance from the Nexus is very good and usually lasts several sessions.

You will love the Nexus.

You should print a fitting so a Rigel will fit a standard finderscope shoe. 

I haven’t got a rigel or a standard finder shoe though 😉 I’ve got a red dot that fits on a picatinny rail and an old Tal finder that has its own weird mount- the rectangular bits were meant for the Tal finder but i’m not sure i’m going to use it  now

I bet that people that have got Rigel would pay for that type of fitting 😉
