An update from Dean follows ...
Thanks to all who have responded in some way to my note about my stolen stuff. A few people have asked for more details about the trailer.
As far as I am aware it would be unique in SA. It is fully enclosed in aluminium "checker-plate". I don't have a photo, but I have attached two from the web-site, showing the same type of trailer, and the lid attached to another trailer. It stands about 1.2 m high, flat top with cargo rack as shown below.
I guess it is a "hoon magnet", as it is bright and shiny, and would appeal to bird-brains! The rego is YHK324
It might have had a paint job by now, but it was plain aluminium!
If anyone sees it around the place, could you give me a ring with its location, and I will contact the police.
Thanks to all who have offered to lend me equipment. You are a great bunch!
I have managed to borrow a portable "planetarium" type dome from Swinburne Uni for a couple of weeks, so I can fulfil a few school bookings, and it looks like a new one is available for immediate shipment from Boston(!). (The last one took 6 months to arrive!!) Hopefully the insurance will come to the party asap.
If anyone is interested to have a look, my website is�
Thanks again. You are terrific!

Unfortunately I don't have a photo of my telescopes. My hand made one
is in a varnished marine-ply box about 400x300x300. I found some
photos of a similar Vixen and mount, which are below. My mount has
aluminium legs though.
