The new Orion rings, focuser knobs and the Diagonal from Celestron came in today. The knobs are VERY nice, the rings are Awesome and the Diagonal is HUGE! I'm not used to this 2" Stuff ;)

First light should hopefully be tonight if the CSC is right :jump:

An FYI on the visual adapter. I bought a Baader M60 visual adapter for my VC200L, because I wanted something a little easier to use with gloves than the Vixen. I couldn't reach focus with my two inch eyepieces, it was about a millimeter or two too much extension. Baader had Alpine Astro re machine it for me, but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. I'm telling you this in case you get a similar idea.

Thanks for the heads up :) I don't think it will be an issue yet as I have no 2" EP's at this moment and with what I have spent over the last couple of weeks, the wife would cut my privates off if I spent another dime. :bawling:
