Very nice indeed, nice colour too.
Do you have very small hands or is that quite a large camera?

A replacement ball bearing for the extruder on my Giant 3D printer.

Well, postman didn’t drop it off exactly - I picked it up from DHL offices ;)

Looks like a bank account crasher. Pretty neat!

I've stocked up on 3D printer filament but I doubt if that counts unless I use it to make astro gear like I have in the past.

The ED120 has arrived!

It was a nice surprise to find out that it comes with a RACI finder instead of a straight through one.

Now I need for the sky to clear so I can test it side by side on the AZeq5, with my bresser 127L.

Enjoy the 120 ed. I've owned one for almost  4 years. And love it. 

Later on you may consider an upgrade for the focuser to a moonlite.

Not long now to receive parcels under the guise of doing your Christmas shopping...

8 Yr old. About 50 euros. I'll have some of that please. 

 

50 euros! Cripes you could get a special bottle a Glenfiddich or Laphroaig for far less than that!

I’ll do first light tonight and start a thread. Speaking in terms of the product (not the quality of views) mostly impressed, but with a couple of things that I feel could be done differently. 

Above all, I am a visual observer, so my needs regarding some aspects are different to an imager’s needs. More in a separate thread. 

For the time being, wishes for a Merry Christmas to everybody and keep the posts coming - this is a very enjoyable thread!

.......another marvellous Sky & Telescope's Field Map of the Moon.

I already have the Mirror Image version, for use with the frac and SCT, but it's a little awkward when using the Dob since that gives 180deg of rotation.  This latest one doesn't give that rotation - it's non-inverting, i.e. for binocular use, so has to be turned upside down to match the view in a reflector.

Pics attached, including a shot of the NE quadrant, ready for use!

Doug.

4 new bearings for my moonlite focuser. Hopefully it'll start running smoothly again. Not that I need it at the moment with this weather

Ducks Back breathable waterproof cover for the mount. Predominantly for storage in the garage but choose a bigger one for the times if the weather catches me out and I can throw it over and get it back inside. 

Size 6 which is, length 75cm/width 45cm/height 75cm. 

Its on a HEQ5.

Well I was genuinely surprised by this delivery, given I’ve only received about 3 over the last 12 months!
