This one is from TeleskopService but it comes from different brands (Stellarvue has it too)
Problem for me is to squeeze as much sky as I can out of casual opportunities, having no garden and no windows to speak of,
I decided to go crazy with portability figuring any sky is better than no sky.
I know that I will suffer major light loss in this little fellah and truly if all I get is a bit of crater on the moon I’m fine (at least that’s what I tell myself)
I’m sure I will get more though, after all with a 32mm I get the famous bino 10x50 and I know there are possibilities in that.
Portable it is. Hold your horses, I can fit the scope itself, a star diagonal, a 45° diagonal (ah the luxury), a 2.5x Barlow,
2 fixed eyepieces of choice, a red dot finder and a 8-24 zoom all in a Camera box no bigger than 12” by 9”
For mount I use a real cheap alu/plastic photo tripod and I’m good to go.
I do have a sturdier one but its heavy so I prefer the weight of the cheap one.
First light: A little curse for a little scope, tonight I got a fluffy sky with a rare hole in the cover here and there,
but enough to get a quick peak at the moon (Sharp as a whistle). The scope looks promising, so I'm happy.
I’m sure all of this has made some cringing going on, but did I mention.. it’s soo cute
