    Hi Paul. Congratulations on the beautiful new telescope. It looks very well constructed, and includes a lot of nice touches too. I think you are really going to enjoy using this new refractor. Thanks for your new equipment report, and I can't wait to see your first images with this new scope.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words and encouragement. Still cloudy... I hope I get to use it on the weekend now that the moon is going to sleep .

    Bent, thank you for that! I really like the new format of Smugmug. All the pictures in there were taken with either the SkyWatcher or the LX200 with Alt Az fork mount. Now I'll have to re-do a lot of them ... Can't wait.

    That is a beauty Paul! Once you get that new EQ mount the sky is the limit.
    This used to be a great place to hang out but now it is not safe here anymore.
