What did the postman bring?

I know mate.  I was shocked, and of course told him off in between thanking him.

I hinted my wife and kids for a PS4 Pro as the fathers day gift, then slowly shifted the idea towards a more reasonable gift ... the motorized focuser which i really needed which i thought i got through to them ... one night i was looking at some cologne for myself, left the page open on the desktop and went to sleep ... 2 days later, my wife and kids surprised me to that cologne ... clearly 4 times a day hint wasn't enough ... i should've been more direct lol

Congratulations! I’ve looked at that eyepiece more than once. Very keen to hear how you find it! 

Based on all the recent acquisitions, I can only assume you’re now out of kidneys to sell ?

I'm actually trying to make all of this self-funding but the balance sheet is showing some strain at the moment so I'll have to have a chat with the Sales department to see if we can shift some more bits and pieces to match the expenditure ?

Nice Mr postman brought me my new shiny Bresser AR152/1200.

Who's a happy chappy then? ?

Looks just right on the HEQ5, can actually use it now. _20180622_181510.thumb.JPG.8d330d351debd12998d6b0512bf48c9e.JPG

Looks nice there and blue skies above - that's not natural in this hobby.

I can see dark clouds over Ripon  :clouds1::clouds1::clouds2:⚡:clouds1: for the next 3 weeks whilst the rest of the UK basks in glorious sunshine and clear night skies ☀️.

Well that is the norm when new equipment arrives. But I really hope that it is not the case for you (mostly because I am just a stones throw away).

In all seriousness good luck with the new purchase.

Cheers Steve. 

Hoping it stays clear for later on. Need to road test it all. 

Hope you've not put a hex on me now!!!

I shouldn't think so.

You should be able to get it all set up on the moon right now to road test it so no issues in the little darkness we get at this time of year.

A Baader focusing eyepiece holder arrived today. Have a pair now for another binocular project.

Great little piece of kit - and MUCH cheaper than a dual speed focuser upgrade ?!

You look away from a thread for a few days and the world of SGL goes mad.
That poor postal service has been rather busy in June so far.
Has it been cloudy or something?

I know the camera adds 10 Lbs, but this EP looks like a MONSTER.

It's actually not that big :lol: 

Here it is next to its 20mm 100º cousin and a TV32mm Plossl...

Congratulations on your new telescope and eyepieces.

I look forward to read how you find the 30mm UFF.
