Collimation Eyepiece


It took a little bit to get use to using the collimation eyepiece.
But after you get the hang of it man it makes the whole world of difference to your viewing experience.

Green Laser GLP

I did it! I have been wanting a BTG – 2 Green Laser / Black or GLP for a long time and I ordered it to day.
I saw that is was on sale for $55.00 and I could not pass it up.
Shipping was FAST it went out with in hours of the order.

Our club has 1 GLP and sometimes it forgotten or not at the star party.
So I decided to get one.
A GLP can be used as a scope finder but I just want it as a pointer

Globular Cluster in Pegasus.
It is worth the time to find it. It pretty small and it a tight cluster.
