Thank you, Phil. That really is a gorgeous, massive-looking, mount. It would appear from the photo that my thoughts of this being a portable mount was doomed from the beginning. I hope that Celestron has one of these at NEAF where I can actually get a feel for the size. Amazing that a photo never really gives a sense of size/mass. I appreciate you posting the image. I can't help myself, though...I really want one of these!

That's ok the important thing is we got a pic from a CN member. on my monitor the pic is a little dark that's why I had to brighten it a bit. but thanks for the picture. Now all we need is a mini review and maybe a first light pic :grin:

As for size the focuser to the left of the picture is a Meade 16" Lightbridge.
