Happy Christmas to you all.


Gave my telescope mirror a Christmas clean today..

First blow all the dust (and spiders) out with hair dryer.
Then wash over the mirror with fine lens brush and distilled waster
Dry with lens tissues
Finally spray with a decreasing optical spray and dry with a clean lens cloth.
Not perfect but removed all the salt spray and dust.
Just need a new set of flats and darks to complete the job.

Hope you all have a happy Christmas..
