Skys were clear, not a cloud in site and I set up my SS SO 1.5 <.3 filter on my Meade AR5 on an Atlas mount, and my Lunt 60 CaK and DS SM 40 filters on my ED80, both on an iOptron MiniTower.
Here is the pix.

...I particularly like the 0.3A yard cannon.

Do you have a detailed comparison of the DS40 vs. SS 0.3 anywhere I could read? I'd very curious to see how they compare as both my rigs are fairly wide (0.7 and 0.5).
Also, what aperture are you running the SS 0.3 at? (It looks like the ERF is in the 90mm range?)

Tom, it sounds like the AR5 with SS works beautifully. Just out of interest how long was the wait?
Jeff, I think a yard cannon plus 0.3A SS would compliment your SF70 beautifully. You know it makes sense...

I was actually considering a SolaREDi 60mm 0.3 to keep everything nice and portable. But I'm not liking where the reviews have gone so far.
Tom (or anyone else who knows) --
Is the SS oven line-voltage-only, or can you get a 12V option?
