Well took the plunge on Tuesday and been buying again (for what could be the last time for quite a while), apart from a H-Alpha solar scope and a bigger dob there is nothing else I need.   W

think i may just have ordered one of these  

Christmas came early. ?   Think I have everything I need now except possibly a Polemaster. Nice dealings with RVO ?...

not bought anything yet, but given the wife a long list of goodies for my xmas list now she is back working, but as the cheapest on the list is £100 so i don`t hold out much hope of getting any of it.

i`ll hold her pressie back to see what i get if anything L.O.L.

Just bought a Telrad, right angled correcting finder scope, Baader UHC-s filter, and an auto focuser. Next up on the list is dew prevention then EP's.

Damn this hobby is expensive, even with the cheap stuff!

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

The Cambridge Star Atlas (well, it was a free gift for subscribing to the Sky at Night magazine). It just arrived! :D

Thanks for the reminder, need to call them and cancel my recurring subscriptions : decided Astronomy Now is sufficient for me

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.

I normally get garbage, this was a really thoughtful gift. :)

What, the star atlas or the pink plastic fluffy handcuffs?
