Yea you guessed it. 

These boxes showed up yesterday. Did a little unboxing. 

I have only gotten as far as putting the mirror in the vmb. Still need to snug up the sling.

I'm in no rush. So, pics and notes as we go.

SWEET! bow.gif

Looks like you got the DSC's? The Argo Navis works great and gets "out of the way" during observing.
