Happy Holidays to astronomers everywhere!
I did get a new APO refractor from Santa this year! Upgraded from my trusty old Orion ED80, which I will continue to use as a solar imaging platform. The new William Optics GT102 triplet I picked up in an AStroMart auction brand new for a significant discount. This will serve as the scope for video astrononomy, visual observing and maybe a few images with my dslr. The scope was actually reviewed in Nov Astronomy magazine. Didn’t know it was a brand new model!
Hopefully will get it set up in the next few days!
