Oooops...

Oooops...

I appear to have a new Explorer 200PDS sat on my mount in the living room...

What will the missus say when she comes home!  :D

After enjoying the views through other members Explorers recently and last year, I decided I would like my own, to compliment my Equinox, so really it's your fault... that's my story and I'm sticking to it!  ;D

Chris.... remember last year discussing the Nirvana eyepiece range? You said you wouldnt fancy the 1kg in weight 28mm hanging off the end of the 80mm. Well..... that excuse wont wash now!!!  ;D
PS... you can try mine next time we get to Harperrig ;)

Hah Lorne, don't tempt me!  :D

I take it you like the 28mm then? I love the 16mm in the ED80, such a great combo!

Yep, the 28mm is fantastic. Gave me my best view ever of M31 + 32 + 110 all in same FOV from Harperrig. It is a fair sized lump of glass mind you.... wouldn't like it to land on my toes!
