    Default My new scope arrived today:)



    I got an Orion 4.5 starblast imager, got it mounted on my SLT mount from my 90SLT. Also added the orion accufocus to it, and cant wait for some clear skys now!
    Horrible, got into the hobby about two weeks ago, with a 90SLT, Neximage 5, and a few other odds and ends, and only had one clear night so far.......and already have another scope
    PBalu, dcbrown73, green12 and 2 others like this.
