I didn't bother. It works out at a lot of Euros and the price would buy a GOTO upgrade for my mount.


Now that's good thinking. Considering the overall price of the weekly parts, buying a complete one of good quality orerey could be cheaper alright.

I cant argue with that logic.
I'm still waiting for the delivery of my first one, it said it could be 21 days from the first payment so it might be a while yet.

:D , hi all, I subscribed and so far am very happy with the product, Solid brass and it has a clear varnish to stop tarnishing. The books are filled with some great images with content to suit beginner to intermediate telling the story of the solar system how it was created and how it will eventualy expire.
:cry: :cry:
