On the 21st June, I was like a kid at Christmas. It was delivery day of the new scope! I couldn't believe the size of the box and I thought to myself that it couldn't be that big, surely?! I felt excited opening the box and seeing it was the size of the box pretty much, I couldn't help but be slightly taken aback. I just stood and looked at it for a while. This thing is massive I thought to myself. Then I thought whether I'd manage getting it out the box given how small I am! I managed to get it out the box and onto the lounge floor. Not as heavy as I expected, but somewhat cumbersome nonetheless. So, it has a lovely 2" Crayford focuser with 10:1 dual speed and a 1.25" reduction adapter, 35mm extension tube for eyepiece use.
