It's here, my Star Destroyer Takahashi Mewlon 250S!!!
It arrived safely internationally (thanks to the seller who packed this amazingly well).
This is my new dark sky scope, and my backyard scope when time permits it.
It is HUGE (re:long), but manageable for loading and unloading.
I can't wait for summer globs and galaxies!! And some planetary nebula which I have rarely, if at all, seen.
