Fantastic report, Tim! The sketches really complement the text well, making it much easier for me to visualize the differences between the two scopes. Well done!

Thanks Guys It actually began as some notes to myself - I had so many thoughts and ideas going round in my head as to which scope to keep and which to sell thought it would be easier to write them down into something vaguely coherent. Then thought I may as well share

Great article Tim, thanks, really enjoyed the sketches and accounts of what you observe not only with the big TEC but also in the Southern skies.

thought of your amazing work with this scope today because I may be attending a steampunk festival tomorrow!

Oh I think the big one Steve I've sort of come to the conclusion that it will need an observatory though, and that will mean a new house
