Hi All

£319 Via ebay arrived in time for Christmas. Built Christmas Day nice quality. Came with a 10mm, 25mm Wide angle and a 2X barlow plus finder scope.

Went outside in daylight and aligned the finder with the tube and then waited for night which was promised to be clear. I was not disappointed. Venus, Mars, Orions belt, Pleiades, and Sirius all in one night. I even managed to get a photograph of Venus. It isn't going to win awards. The camera isn't suitable and was held to the eye piece. Also it's coatings added a blue hue to it. But I don't care at his point.

Plans are for a web cam solution for astro photography, I am on a budget, and a tracking drive to aid the same.
