    Smile Set up my new scope



    I have finally set up my new telescope and now eagerly waiting for the skies over Bloomington to clear up.
    This is a Sky-Watcher 130NS EQ2. I tested the collimation and it appears to be perfect. I received this last week and did not have the heart to open the box and set it up till today. The weatherman forecasts clearer skies beginning tomorrow and I cannot wait to take it out into the open and test it out.
    I will post a detailed first light report tomorrow.
