1- One of BORG long time users – Federico Spotti shared his recent nice images taken with BORG 90FL F4 and IDAS NB1.

Thank you, Federico! I’m looking forward to more your images.

2- One of my club members was looking for a longer focal length guide scope. So I built the scope up with BORG components including my old 77EDII objective lens and XY positioner. This is quite simple, comprising a lens, tubes and drawtube focuser. So very lightweight.

He tested already and found out much more guiding improvement. This is 510mm focal length. So XY positioner is a kind of must-have item especially for a small sensor.  He says very useful. Yes, I believe so.
