That's not an "unboxing", it's just a box. You're taunting us. ☹️

I like the $ sign incorporated into the scope mount graphic - very apt !

Looks very like my DL boxes ????

Another person to join the 100DZ club! Are you the second owner of one on SGL?  
Looks fantastic and I’m sure you will love it 😊

Managed a quick look at the Moon at 6pm last night, sky still bright so not ideal - at x216 it was very sharp.

it’s noticeably lighter than my current 4” scope which is the main reason I bought it, the Vixen GP holds it very well.

Had to change the excellent Tak finder for a RACI finder as my back finds it more comfortable.

just need a decent night now........

I did the same re: the finder.

Your current 4"  scope - is that the FS102 ?

Very nice Takahashi and burlesque show, but you could have waited until I got the roof on my obsy build, it's chucking it down now! 😆

That is a very attractive scope.  And quite the performer from what I have read.  Enjoy!

David,

Lovely scope!👍🤘

A few questions for you if I may..

1. Is MikeDnight earning a commission on this scope?🤭😁

2. Is this scope a threat to your FS128 - or just a more grab and go alternative?:glasses12::glasses12:

3. If the answer to (2) above is "yes", can I have the FS128 to pair up with mine to make a giant pair of Fluorite Binoviewers? :headbang::hello2:

Dave

Hello Dave,

1. Who is MikeDnight ? 😂😂😂

2. No, the FS128 is staying, this as you say is a g&g option

3. Sorry - that would have given great views but two f/8 scopes would have given f/16 🤪so you would have had to change your forum name - which should really be f/8.125 now 😱

A beautiful scope David, congratulations. Viewed as a life long (and may it indeed be so) investment, then the hit on the wallet becomes less eye watering. May it give you lasting pleasure.
