    I am very content with what I have but you never know tomorrow
    I was contemplating solar viewing but dropped it. I have too many books to read.

    I remembered another telescope though I did not buy it.
    Some well meaning neighbors saw the telescope for sale and bought it for me.
    A 150 mm f/5 newtonian on a EQ-1 mount. The mount was simply horrid and the telescope had a spherical mirror which just does not work at f/5 unless you just want to view the Moon.
