Thanks everyone.

I'm really pleased with it. It has made observing a pleasurable experience in the garden instead of having to dodge all the local lights trying to shine in my eyes.

I am making a small modification to the pier at the moment.   Something I ordered back in January arrived a couple of weeks ago and I've been waiting for some clear skies to get it set up and ready for use.

Photos to follow...
