Astroarg Posted December 8, 2020 Share Posted December 8, 2020 When I finally added myself an Instagram account, I suddenly realised how much wheeling and dealing I had been doing on telescope equipment. The worst of it was I had invited the wife to "like" my account, she decided to read through and quickly realise my "I've not spent too much, honest love" was a little white lie....Unfortunately, I learnt (not earnt) the hard way by not doing it correctly to start ...October 2018 was when it really started... got myself the SkyWatcher Star Adventurer pack and my first bit of Altair kit, the 70ED package and 0.8x reducer. I was using a Canon 70D un-moddified.February 2019 I picked up an astro-modded Canon 1100 and CLS-CCD Filter, and in May 2019 an Astronomik 12nm HA filter... by August 2019 these had all been sold ? ? ? At this point I spent my first "small fortune" with Altair... HyperCam 183c Fan, HyperCam EOS lens adapter, Altair MG32 guide package, Altair quadband filterOctober 2019 I flogged the Star Adventurer as I was really struggling with balance, and purchased iOptron CEM25P mount.April 2020 I flogged the 183c Fan camera, and purchased an ex-demo 183c Pro Tec, because Ian showed me how shiny it was.June 2020 I flogged the 70ED package kit, and in August finally decided to buy the 72EDF...and just recently sold the Quadband filter and grabbed the OptoLong L-Extreme (waited a month from order to delivery), and now have 4-5 months of cloud and rain... meh. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
