A very Merry Christmas to all!

I was very lucky and got a copy the Dobsonian Telescope building book by Berry and Kriege, a new 15mm TV Plossl and a new to me 7mm Baader GO and 9mm University Optics Ortho.

I am kidding myself that this completes my eyepiece buying for good.

Sounds like most people got some good stuff, just wish Santa had dropped these down my chimney as well, but for those struck down with illness hope it passes soon. You know what your mums used to say "Nothing like getting out of the house and get some fresh air" - Time you use your scope.
