I have the Elite Bug Shirt and pants, 100% effective against mosquitoes. Looks a little goofy but who cares. I use the microfiber version because of the heat and humidity here, cooler than the cotton.



I purchased the shirt and pants at your suggestion a few years back after reading another complimentary post that you made. These are awesome and really work. Just had it at Cherry Springs last week.

 

 

Doesn't the mesh across your face get in the way of looking through eyepieces?  I don't see how this is practical for visual observing. Unless maybe you just want to fire up the scope to take pictures all night.   :sleepy:

The mesh has dual zippers around it so you can open a slot for the eyepiece on either side.

Nice display cases!  It's probably a good thing that I don't live within driving distance of TNR.  :ubetcha:

 

This is true! At NEAF last year, I got to "fondle" the TAK 120 and even though I have a similar AP130GT, I almost bought the thing on the spot, twice. I had to walk away!!! The TAK allure is a truism once you get to see and touch them in person. I'm glad TNR is thousands of miles away! :p

Having already owned a Sky90 and 2 60cs, I decided to move away and try something else and got that Borg125SD for that ultra light package. Well, really couldn't resist the Takisits.

Paul,

 

Do you use your BORG 125SD also visually?

I would be interested to hear your opinion.

 

....and yes although my stable is big enough a TSA120 has a magic attraction.   :smirk: 

 

best regards

Chris

Chris,

I'm primarily an imager, so I can't really give good comparison to other scopes. 

 

I know there are some other users on this forum that can give you good comments.

 

Regards,

Paul
