Middle of last year I was just about ready to dabble into guiding  then we had bad weather then I started patio so didn't do any astronomy  as an incentive to get it done then more bad weather just don't seem to get a minute these days

Life and clouds do seem to scupper plans so regularly. :lol:

 

I have the Baader MPCC for visual. It is lightweight and handy for screwing into 2" eyepieces, but needs different combinations of fine tuning rings to get the best out of different eyepieces, which can be a bit fiddly in the dark. Got the Altair Astro version also, which is heavier and looks more like a barlow making EP's stick out even more. (Most of my eyepieces stick out a lot without it :D). The AA also slightly amplifies/reduces FOV by about 1.15x whereas the Baader is neutral.
