Spring cleaning

About this image

With a spot of warmer weather, I decided to do a bit of a spring clean in the observatory. It's amazing how much dust and detritus accumulates. Not to mention spider webs!

Since posting I have been asked what the kit is:

Celestron C11

Takahashi FS60C

Vixen 50 mm illuminated finder

Gemini Telescope Systems G41 Observatory Plus equatorial

That's a very tidy set up - literally :)

Thanks James. It's amazing what a duster and a damp cloth can do! Neither of which got anywhere near any optical surfaces I hasten to add!
