17/2/2016 - When asked if he had opened the boxes, Ken said: “Yea I've opened them but just putting Oscar to bed so not had chance to put it together . It's very imposing !!! It seriously makes my scope in the Observatory look like a toy telescope.”

17/2/2016 - And when asked what his wife thought of the new purchase: “Well she wasn't happy at first but she wants a new car this year so that gave me some bargaining chips .”
