Some time has passed again since my last update.
For various reasons I sold most of my last gear and traded the 115mm triplet apo (which I never blogged about) for an entirely new setup.

Right now I have a full Sky-Watcher setup: a 200mm F/5 Newton with dual speed 10:1 focuser on a HEQ-5 Pro.
I know, it’s a step back from my previous telescopes, but I hope to have more fun with this bigger aperture and light-weight mount.
The problem I had with my previous setup is that I found myself reluctant to set the heavy CGE and everything else up outside on those rare unclouded nights.
This new set will be easily and quickly deployed outside.

Right now it will be for visual use only, but I will buy the necessary adapters, coma corrector and anti-light pollution filter when funds are available again. I will be using my trusted Canon EOS 550D again.
