Apologies for the Weather
« on: September 10, 2013, 07:58:10 AM »
Well I guess it was my fault after weeks of clear weather and waiting for my new scope to arrive. Friday afternoon was a really exciting time







Then I looked out the window to see this :(

Nice scope that, is it a quattro ?

Hi, no I sold the Quattro a few months back. This is a Teleskop Service scope and though I loved my Quattro this scope is in another league. The Quattro design changed and I was looking at the 10CF but the new models have a very poor focuser fitted it seems. So I started looking around and found TS did a similar scope but fitted with a Baader Steeltrack low profile focuser as standard so I had to have that :) and if I'd bought the Quattro and upgraded the focuser I would have spent more. So I'm well happy it's altogether a much superior build with stainless screws and standard fittings which I had to modify on my Quattro. Like a rotatable secondary and a cooling fan

Looks a well made bit of kit, that focuser looks indestructable... good luck with its first light :)
