Firstly I'd like to to say sorry to everyone in melbourne for the upcoming crappy weather.
I picked up my new baby today from Bintel, a 12" skywatcher goto dobbie :) (they are on sale atm).
Can't with for some clear weather, but this is melbourne so I might be waiting a while!

Jealous! That looks awesome.
Congrats on the new baby. :D

Isn't it just AWESOME when you unpack those boxes and put it all together?!?!?!?!
Have fun :)
The Cats will have fun with the boxes once they are empty!

Nice score there Paula. :thumbsup:
I see the Cats are doing the ' once over ' for contraband before they release the ' goodies ' to you. ;)

Looks great. But don't hug your new baby too much; you'll wear the paint off. :)

The proliferation of these decent sized, easy to get around dobs are a boon for the amateur astronomer!
19-08-2012, 12:30 PM
Wow that is sooo impressive and I just know it's going to be a lot of fun.
Jealous? Who, Me?

The 12" dob is a beautiful thing and the SW Go To ones are about the best in the commercial lines.
I must have missed you in Bintel. I was in there Saturday morning. The boys told me I was only their 3rd customer that day, you may have been one of the other 2!
I also am partly responsible for any crappy weather as I picked up a 6mm Delos there!
Hope the skies cxlear and we hear some results.

Nice one oh by the way you do know that all boxes belong to cats don't you:rofl:
19-08-2012, 07:58 PM
Well done that must have been one hell of a delivery
19-08-2012, 08:00 PM
Nice scope and nice cats! Just make sure they don't mark your new toy as theirs like my cats do :help: ;)
19-08-2012, 10:02 PM
Thanks everyone, still waiting for the clear skies!
Malcolm I was in Bintel about 1pm so i dont know if I was there before or after you, have fun with your new 6mm :)

I assume that Victoria will now be blessed with cloudy skies for at least a fortnight?
20-08-2012, 07:45 AM
Nice one !! Congrats on the upgrade.
Just about perfect 'eye height' at zenith as well I see ....
Don't forget to give the cats their boxes back ....

Hey Paula nice scope. Would like to hear what you think of the 12" in comparison to the 10", if the skies ever clear that is. Have decided that I'm the 'less is more kind' of observer and am trying to decide between 10/12" dobbie one of these days to go along with my 6" frac.
