    I guess your planning on either planetary imaging or some very small objects. Congrats!

    Little of both Mike. I sold the 16″ DOB. had a lot more light but 1800fl. This is darker but 2700fl. Should be great smaller scope to set up and do visual with the wife while the TOA150 is imaging in the observatory.

    Also I really like the planet shots I see so I may try some. I have the ASI290MINI for a guide scope so I may try it for some planetary video and see.

    Wow Really Nice.  I have not seen a scope with an eyepiece on it in years!  I actually sold all of mine.  Kind of wish I had held on to a few of them though

    Hey man respect us old guys.  It’s the lens you look through knucklehead!  At least that’s what they call them on the vendor sites.  I don’t know.  What do you call them.  That’s the second time I’ve been asked that question.  Straighten me out, what do y’all call them? I’m just a bonehead from S Louisiana

    Getting ready to drop my Veil Nebula on ya.  Cut me some slack it’s been a bad year!

    Fell off my porch trying to pull the cable up for my dog run and broke three ribs.  Do you know how hard it is to drag a Losmandy mount and SVA130 outside with broken ribs

     

    Ha ha ha
