The very day I left for a 5 day break ... she turned up ...!! :2thumbs:
Took her with me ( still boxed and unopened ).

Went up to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland ... just beautiful up there.

Got to the cabin ... sat her on my lap .. took her out of the box :D

Isn't she just something eh ...!!! ;)

Check her out ..!!

Congratulations Flash with the new baby!

Typical Televue quality.

Personally, I think IMHO the TV-85 is the best pound for pound doublet refractor TV makes in their range (probably an even better and more useful scope than the venerable and sadly now extinct TV-102).

I trust you took full advantage of the high dollar and if bought locally when the prices were down.

I will be very interested to learn what you think of the new 2-speed focuser.

They are the best looking scopes. I have a slightly larger version and simply adore it. Perhaps too much ;)

;) A real love affair eh ...!! :D

Yes .. they look good alright and perform beyond my expectation.
Worth every $ to.
