For a few seconds it looked like the scope behind yours was part of yours and I thought "he has a second mount on the end of that thing" An optical illusion at first. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here's a more modest setup. Perfect for wide field photos.

Hi, I really wanted the TMB 130SS refractor but astronomics can't get them. so I decided on the 132mm FLT. its a good second choice.

Yeah they've been back order for quite some time. I was lucky to get mine through a trade. I love the 132 FLT though. I've always been a fan of Williams Optics. They make great scopes. :)

My recently acquired G-11, with my recently built 6-inch f/10 Jaegers refractor. I'm having lots of fun tweaking and upgrading the mount.
