Hi Mark,

Welcome to the forum.

Best of luck with your new scope (and what a scope that is ). You're sure to get some great views with that :)

Hi and welcome

Good scope you have there, if it's anything like my C8. Just hope for some clear skies to use it!

Hi Mark and welcome!

That is a very capable telescope so don't let it overwhelm you. Take time to learn it and it will reward your patience. It took me 40 years to work up to a 10 inch telescope :D
