Wooty woot woot

I’ve had a stroke of good fortune, during my week off work I went down to Hythe to see the future in laws, part of the reason was to collect Trudy’s telescope. When I first met her she told me that only the main scope was in the box, the tripod optics and controller handset were still with her ex. Over the last two weeks I’ve had the scope in the back garden and have enjoyed using it. Sadly I haven’t been able to get the true use of the scope due to the missing bits. I phoned telescope house and they said that they would look out for one and mail me if they had any luck tracking one down, so far no luck. Earlier in the week, Trudes mailed her ex to once again ask him if he could locate the missing components. He replied saying that he had the tripod and would bring it to her mum & dads at the weekend. It has transpired that he has done as he said and not only is the tripod in the bag but also the controller and the eye pieces. Oh sweet joy, now all I need is a clear sky to give the thing a proper workout.
