Some of you might have seen my post about "My journey so far..." well the opportunity knocked on the door (computer screen) to pick up an 8 month old WO Zenith Star 103 at what i think was a great deal!
I did not hesitate (having deliberated for some time over a beautiful Megrez 110 a while back, and regretted not purchasing), I pulled the trigger and paid my $750 to the seller. It arrived yesterday, it knocked my socks off!!!! What a beautiful instrument, looks brand new except for a mark on the focuser the seller disclosed and told me how it occurred which set my mind at ease, there's not even any marks on the dovetail... just gorgeous, like the title says "Over the Moon"!
Going to take my time, a few more items to purchase before I put it to good use, meanwhile my little AT 72EDII will get some more star time and i've still a tremendous amount to learn however I think i'm on the right track hence some more investment into this absorbing hobby!
Thank you for all the kind words of encouragement on my previous post "My journey so far..." this forum is brilliant and a great aid to someone like me, new to this environment!
