A Moonrake with Moonlite focusers new

Sory to pop up again, but Ron at Moonlite has done me proud. I asked him to produce special focusers to copliment the Moonraker scopes and I just had to stick a few rushed images of a couple from the order that just arrived. 2.5" and 2" ready to be fitted to the new range, soon to be available, of Apo triplets and ed doublets for Imagers that want something totally unique. Thanks, Mark.
You can see a few images here........

Here's a fun picture of a space man getting confused, thinking he's got his hands on his favourite interstella pulse cannon

Looks like one of "Dr. Who" enemies, a "CyberMan" to me.

That's right Mike, but I didn't want to get in trouble with the BBC in case of copyright issues.....Still, when I was a kid, they scared the out of me, nice that they turned up and had a play with the scopes though.

No.......... that's polished Alli and then ceramic coated to minimise tarnishing........ All scopes come with a nano cloth so you can keep buffing. It's a thing of beauty and as such, in order to perform it need's attention, some lovin affection............. Right on! {keep it clean, so the stars can be seen!}
