Looks more like Sauron's Eye! That dust is stunning. Very nice Carole.

Thank you Duncan, really glad I didn't sell this scope now, I had it up for sale a few months ago as I hadn't used it for nearly 2 years.

I think the length of it clashing with the tripod/pier was putting me off.  Just need to be selective what i image with it I think.

Thanks Robert.  I am certainly happy that it is an improvement on my previous version.
