I can't wait till February

That is when the skkywatcher Esprit 100mm is next available, I know that because I know the man at OVL UK, so i have just ordered this which will come next week, as this is a massive purchase I do hope I am doing the right thing

For those who haven't seen it yet, it is in Gemini. I'll be doing a write-up under Phil's Scribblings.
