    I went down to OPT and picked up a StarGps-Nx for my ETX 125 Observer! Also looked at a EOXS2 mount. Gotta talk to my financial advisor (WIFE!) about that one. Lol!

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind.

    I think Volume 3 of the Webb Society handbook on open clusters should be arriving today. Guess I should check the shipment tracker.

    You might want to change your order from a 5xBarlow to a 2xBarlow, it will see a LOT more use than the 5x which will over power most EPs (it's starting to with your 25mm on your f/6 reflector). You will rarely want to go shorter than 6mm in your scope, sometimes 5mm (which is what you get with the 25mm EP and 5xBarlow) and on RARE occasions maybe even 4mm (which you would get with a 20mm EP) but the 5xBarlow will be totally useless with anything shorter where you could use a 2xBarlow with many more EPs for many more possible focal lengths once you have a few quality EPs.
