Thanks to motivating info from CNers recently

(http://www.cloudynig...5/o/all/fpart/1)

I finally pulled the trigger and bought a Lunt H alpha scope from a local vendor (Thanks Hans at Telescope Service Norden (Sverige) for a great job packing and sending, and not charging shipping :bow:).

Anywhere here it is, ready for a dove tail, and to go play outside ... and the best thing: sunny skies and no clouds
:jump:

I'll be busy now,
cheers and beers,
Michael

WOW WOW WOW :jump:
:lol:

:bow:
Just had a look - almost peed my pants - this is gorgeous - saw big sunspots and whopping prominences ...
this is so much better than I thought ...
this will also make it soooo much easier to ask forgiveness (for my secret purchase) from my sweety once she has a look through it ...

Will post pics soon ...

oh, and now I so need to look for some cameras for imaging ...

Cheers

Michael

Great stuff Michael! Better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your new purchase! :D. I think I have had mine out nearly every day that the sun has been out since I got mine!
