Your garden looks so green and beautiful, has your little horsey friend come to visit recently?

Thanks Alexandra

The horsey is coming tomorrow to eat all the grass. She will stay for a couple of months

The sun is really slow.

Thanks Franco

The Zeiss is a fantastic instrument. The chromatic aberration is almost null, similar to a modern apo refractor

I used it today only to observe the sun in white light

Pedro do you have a special cabinet to house your scopes.The biggest problem here is the Subtropical weather and high humidity.

Hi Derek

I have a room with temperature and humidity control but that's all. Most of my scopes are at the observatories. We have dry springs and summers

Pedro:
Beautiful session and presentation.
Love the Zeiss scopes, I had a 110mm f/19 very old apochromatic, it was superb.
Un fuerte abrazo,
Eric.

Thanks Eric

The zeiss semi-apo is a marvellous instrument. I'm looking forward to use it (as soon as the sun show some activity)

Fuerte abrazo
