and here he is...
« on: February 09, 2012, 11:32:25 PM »


The Mrs has called him Luke (Sky-Watcher)... everything gets a name...  ::)

I've spent this evening playing with the mount and learning polar aligning from the online guides. I just need some decent weather now so I can attempt to put it into practice. I'm getting fed up with all this cloud. The scope does look nice setup in the lounge though :)

Cracking looking set-up Chris. I look forward to seeing "Luke" perform.

Yep, the Equinoxes are good scopes. I had a loan of the 100 a couple of years ago while mine was being repaired, and was quite reluctant to hand it back.  ;D
