Nice scope Nick, that's going to improve your images no end.


 


Does the wife know about it yet, or is it one of those "£50" ones! :D

Some women are just so unreasonable - doesn't she realise that's the cost of a half decent eyepiece or collimation tool? :lol:

Hi Nick

Welcome to the GT81 club.

You are going to love that scope. :strut::frantic::2thumbsup:

Thanks Graham, loving already.

It's had first light tonight in the three hour clear spell we've had.

Just a quick setup, no guiding, 20 1min subs on the M42 region.

Result- Superb !
