As the kit cycling continues, the postman brought my Revelation 2" Dielectric Diagonal this morning, but SWMBO has kidnapped it for Xmas :(

Oh well, have to make sure I get my hands on the rest of the parcels next week before her :D

That's awesome and cruel, letting you do the hard work of getting it and then nabbing it for a Xmas pressie. Genius! :D

That's a good star atlas, you got a good deal there, with magazines as well. You will have some good reading over Christmas.

At least the star atlas is useful, last year I got some pink plastic fluffy handcuffs.

Mrs Baz has given Santa permission to deliver me one of these, a upgrade for the Crayford focuser on my Dob.

I'll let you know if they are as good as they look, but if it is then it will make getting the focus bang on real easy, and without having to fork out loads for a Moonlight one.
