Did you know that some of our Singastro members have published reviews of their scopes on www.cloudynights.com? Was going back to the site after a long while and chanced upon these again...heh heh

Wow, looking at the date mentioned in mine, it has been more than 2 years already ! How time flies...you still have your good'ol ETX 105 EC while my Nexstar 4 is long gone. I do miss it and the magic of GOTO 8)

Hm, I think there is some updating to be done on mine (but I'm too lazy to do it... :lol: ), especially on the part where I said you couldn't use your own 1.25" diagonal with either scope. There is an accessory in the market that allows you to do so these days.
