wow i didnt realize the 8SE would fit on the same tripod as the 6SE... How do you buy just the 8SE OTA? i badly want the 8SE...Thanks
You can either find one for sale or you can by a C8 OTA new. Just make sure it has the Vixen V mount/CG-5 dovetail.
As for my scope..
Got to love that street light across the road and my neighbor's porch light.

Here is the list:

FINDER SCOPE-Orion EZ finder Deluxe II
DIAGONAL-Orion Flip Mirror
EYEPIECE-20mm Eyepiece set par-focal with video cameras.
CAMERA-(in this photo) StellaCam III

The telescope is excellent and does really well with video cameras. This is quickly becoming my favorite set up.
Clear Skies to all!

Also, I installed Bob's knobs as well. I like how they stand out on the secondary.

I posted a thread a couple of days where I detailed this very easy and inexpensive mod with locally sourced materials.

Very Nice setup. How do you like the Barska?
From the factory it needs work. Mine has been flocked, painted, new gso dual speed custom fitted, and refinished to polished aluminum. That being said, the optics are excellent, and very much warranted the 20+ hours I have invested in it. I wouldn't trade mine for the world!
