What did the postman bring?

Funny, I just had delivered two of these on Thursday, for attachment to my photography backpack as a means of carrying water bottles while hiking.

Nice. Buying two works out cheaper, but only one was required.🙄

There is a nylon pocket inside that the Talentcell 6000mah battery fits into perfectly, so I'm happy.

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

I can’t believe how light it is compared to the StellaMira 80mm, and the finder is so clear to look through 👍

That looks very nice Gary , congratulations !

Thanks. At first I though it might be duplicating the StellaMira, but that is really quite heavy and this Tak is so light, so it can mounted on the ScopeTech/Report and really be true “grab and go”, without the cool down required for either the Mak or C5 👍

Hi

Not what the postman brought but the local council 🤫, it's a black tub that glass recycling goes in but it's making the perfect dew shield for my laptop and its just the right size, no more dewy laptop. 👍

Berlebach Report 312 ordered yesterday from FLO and as usual here the next day. Smell reminds me pencil shavings - a little nostalgia. Anyone any ideas what the thingamajig is for? Maybe a bubble blower? 

Ignore that google helps - it's a module wrench!

This shouldn’t happen! Postman dropped off a solar filter and finder on a clear sunny day! Bought a filter & finder for my little used these days MAK127. Cheap enough entry into 1st time solar viewing. Can now enjoy this hobby night & day as long as the clouds stay away. ☀️🔭😁

Just took delivery of this mighty Teegul 60 which came all over from Tokyo. S/N 91137, so looks like 1991? Amazingly sharp optics and color-free. Takahashi standard 1.25" visual adapter screwed right instead of the standard 0.965" one. Now looking for the finder..

Also new toys: in the background is the TG-L for my Sky 90, and on the left, just arrived also, the classic FC-100 f/8. I thought I could hang FC-100 on the TG-L but it was too much for it. S/N begins from 71, so not sure what year is that. Manual and certificate all in Japanese, I guess an internal market product.

This specimen of beauty arrived today courtesy of fellow member @mikemabel and parcel force. Thank you Mike for the smooth sale. So chuffed with the purchase of the scope and extras, I'm hoping to get the scope out tonight on my az gti mount, even if it is to see the moon between the clouds for a quick test, I'm sure I'll have many questions to ask about this scope, though thoroughly researched it on here and YouTube. Clear skies everyone. (though I've probably blighted the whole of Cornwall with clouds now) 😉

How interesting! Not come across the Teegul 60 before. Presume it’s a package with a Teegul mount. Love the rolled edge on the dew cap.

I presume you bought from a used dealer in Tokyo?
 

Enjoy!

Congratulations... Combine this with the ScopeTech and StellaMira and you have an adorable setup... it’s right on the payload limit but perfectly stable and wobble free, once focussed 👍

That dark grey is rather lovely 😊

It’s lovely isn’t it... does this happen when you acquire a Tak, suddenly start admiring other similar scopes too 😬🤣🤣

Lovely little telescope, yes! I bought it from Jauce. They bid on your behalf on local Japanese auctions and deliver. Very smooth, but there's always a risk, as sellers can sell junk, although they often mark it as such. Got FC-100 f/8 from there as well. Both my Teegul 60 and FC-100 are internal market products. The FC-100 manual and the badge are all in Japanese. :)

Thanks Gary. Initially wanted the natural colour however none have been in stock an age and read that you and @johninderby had used the Stella on the report and it managed ok. Really pleased with it and 'wood is good' according to melody lane.
