We had really nice conditions in Brisbane tonight with very little wind, good transparency and a pleasant 15 C. It has been a while since I ran up the clock drive on the 4 inch Unitron so I decided to use that for the evening's viewing. My friend Bill was on hand to have a look through the vintage scope and between the two of us we had it set up and tracking in about 20 minutes. We used a selection of eyepieces in the Unihex but the best view by far was with a Fuller scopes (Nihon Seiko) 40 mm orthoscopic eyepiece. We also had a look through a Leica microscope binocular head that I had recently adapted with a 1.25 inch barrel. The eyepieces were x 10 and that gave a nice view too, the lunar pic was taken through the bionoviewers with a hand held iphone.
G'day from Oz and clear skies
