Hi, Arief,

Thanks for the nice pictures. The wooden tripod looks quite similar to what I saw on a Chinese forum last year. Btw, does your new "baby" keep collimation well?

My renovated TMB115 OTA and another three mounts plus diagonals are still on the way, the only available one for me is a 10X50 bino now. :(

Hey LiuMing,

You still have any astroslew mount for sale? I may need one.

But before I do that, I may want to bring the Burgess1278 to your place and try it out with the mount first. That scope is long so not sure how your mount handle it.

Hi, VinSnr,

Yes, still have three pieces on the way to Singapore. I suggest you try it and make decision later, I'll let you know more details when they arrive.

Thanks Bro. I am not sure where is Yong Seng, but guess will just get it from you.

Is it difficult to change?
