The reducer lens for NexImage that I ordered on Monday arrived safely today, which is great. Unfortunately the solar filter ordered on Friday (from the same company) hasn’t arrived yet, but it’s coming by Royal Mail which explains it! There have been a lot of mail strikes lately (as well as a bank holiday), so that’ll be what’s holding it up. Hopefully it’ll get here soon!
Am saving up for the drive motor (around £125 + postage), currently by doing reviews at DooYoo.com. I’m at £5.50 so far … am estimating it’ll take about 7 weeks at my current earning rate!
Also treated myself to Atlas of the Constellations today, which cost £2 in a bargain bookshop!
