Lunt Cak b1800 module arrived

Post by Stardust5858 »

Hi all, "I'm so excited, I just can't hide it" as the song goes, lol. Was supposed to have been a straight through, but I can't be bothered to send it all the way back to Germany and wait for the straight through one to be posted back.

High clouds today so it'll have to be tomorrow for first light.

Shame your weather today, was not like ours Nigella, as you would have had a marvellous opportunity to try the newbie - all day long with not a cloud in sight either...

I wish you a clear sky at least A.S.A.P.

Cheers

It's a great piece of kit; I'm sure you'll get lots of enjoyment out of it.
