Here's an amateurish cluttered shot with my new TV-76 and its big brother, my 2002 vintage TV-102:



Better shot of the new one:

It's hard to keep the artwork level when they share the room with amplified musical instruments!

SSAG on Lunt 60 frames the full solar disk perfectly with nice bright prominences but little surface detail in PHD (or Nudger) with the Bullseye overlay guiding the 152 at 1800-3500mm:

Very nice start to part 5! I'm still an astro rookie and my first thoughts after seeing those last three mounts was "what in the heck is that crazy contraption?" Where's the handles for panning the scope around? Those things look extremely complicated.

FS-60Q + Extender Q 1.6x.

9 (2 + 2 + 5) element 60mm f/16 and 10 element eyepiece setup, yielding 169x. I am hoping to see Trapezium A-F with this small scope. So far A-E, no F.

Total 19 elements. It produces nice image in spite of so many elements
