I got a Telrad. No need for a pic, I'm sure everyone knows what one looks like on an LX200 lol. Still haven't decided on a permanent location for it yet though. I have it temporarily right to the right of the finderscope about halfway down the tube, seems comfy for now.

An Atik EFW2 filter wheel with LRGB and Ha/Oiii/Sii filters.
Now I'm going through the delicate dance of upgrading ASCOM while not demolishing my dome control!

But I expect good things to come from this.

Mrs. Claus (my wife) brought a Canon 60Da. Haven't had a chance to use it yet.

My better half got me a Nikkor 18-300 VR ED lens and a Titanium Casio Pathfinder watch with moon phases, tides, barometer, digital compass, solar power and atomic time!

I think her only significant flaw is poor taste in men...

You guys got some awesome stuff. I rarely get much for the hobby as gifts, so the Telrad was exciting. The wife tends to get me stuff that she can benefit from as well...I got a really nice smoker this year. That could almost be an astro christmas present if I wanted to combine the two hobbies, however the thought of using my scope while simultaneously smoking meat makes me cringe thinking about the condition of my equipment in the morning. Grease, charcoal and sauce everywhere! Not to mention the plume of smoke over my observing site.
