I'm addicted immediately to the Takahashi name, very very very very well made!
But this one is really heavy, despite it's compact in size. I put a 20mm Japanese Widescan Type III into the focuser, and look through it.... woo~~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a nice experience! Unmatched!

I got the reducer/flattener, but not the Ext-Q.... I shall see how good my 5x Powermate works with it first. I know the Ext-Q is optmized for it, but the Sky90 means more wide field than high power to me.
Congratulation Oldfield! Did you get the Extender-Q also?

So when are you going to shoot Mars and the Moon with it?
I have shooted the Mars through a thin layer of cloud plus a layer of variable thickness cloud with it this morning, processing now... expect extremely bad result.

While we wait for better weather (I have some real whoppers of storms knocking at my door) may I encourage you to post a pic of you and your new adapted member of the family. I guess that would be a half member.
