Tonight I had the scope out and it was, for the most part, a very enjoyable evening.

It ended badly though when, whilst fumbling around in the dark, I trod on a tray (for the birds) of water that was not in it's usual place. The tray flipped over and flew in the direction of my scope. Lot's of expletives and a broken tray later, I spent the next hour cleaning the scope up. Thankfully only two tiny drops made it to the primary, so a lucky escape even if really annoying. :(

uh oh spaghetti o's, blame the birds :P If it wasn't for them then that tray wouldn't have been there, but you could also blame your clumsy feet :P

On a more serious note hopefully it's not damaged anything :)
