    Hi Cris
    Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for your advice and recommendations when selling me my telescope. Everything has exceeded my expectations and continues to amaze me.
    After many months of limited opportunity and bad weather. I’ve recently had some success and been able to capture my first images. I look forward to capturing more and exploring the wonders of the night sky.
    Kind Regards
