So will all know what a crappy year it has been.

For myself frustration has been building up over many months not been able to take the "big" scope out to one of the dark sites for safety reason. 

My own garden is really to small for my 16" scope and I have limited view of the sky in a bad light polluted area. So I decided to invest in a small grab and go scope just for the back garden.

After doing a lot of research I thought the 8" Skywatcher would do the trick nicely. As most people know telescopes have become like gold dust during the last 6 months or so.

Anyway it must of been my lucky day because I noticed Trings Astronomy had one in stock, which I ordered on a Friday, came on the Monday. This was at the beginning of November and as with all good telescope stories it been cloudy ever since or clear when I have been working nights at the hospital😪.

The scope itself looks and feels solid. The focuser seems very basic but might change that later.

just really looking forward to using it and as often other people say that their smaller scope are often the most used scope.
