Great shot! Scope working nicely I see, once you managed to open the packaging ?

Indeed,  I'm still finding bits of packaging a week later.    It was like one of those barrels that people go over the Niagra Falls in   !!!

Hopefully the collimation stayed put though. ????

Absolutely.   I was so chuffed with the Lunar images I decided to enter this #23 Terminator competition. 

In one of my posts I have mentioned how impressed I have been with the resilience of both the focus and collimation.    Over three nights of use with the usual assembly / disassembly and some large fluctuations in ambient temperatures both have been spot on.    I'm fancying some DSO's tonight, maybe a bright galaxy.
