Own up...who bought something really big??

With this atrocious weather practically across the whole of eastern Australia, surely someone was really naughty and bought some outrageously extravagant...

Who’s going to ‘fess up?

Be glad for the rain, no bloody bush fires.


Though, here's my prediction - so many moaned about no skies for astro due to the smoke, now there'll be moans due to cloud and rain...

Maybe the AAT at Sidings Springs bought something, the weather can't be due to just some amateur gear.

I’ve been drooling over some upgrades, maybe the threat of purchasing is enough to anger them.

Dont know if a 115mm Apo is big these days..Ive got bigger scopes but this Doubles /Planet Gem arrived just over a week ago...Still think Slawomirs Tak EP is too blame for the shocking weather/seeing in most of our parts recently

guilty your honors!

On friday I was camped at the Warrumbungles camp ground with the idea of trying to do some AP under dark skies.
So new scope + new mount + camping =

Damning rain here in QLD at the moment, and not your average spring thunder shower

Very nice glass Bigjoe

It is a fine eyepiece for sure - I am trying to follow footsteps of much more experienced stargazers
