Can't quite afford (or carry) Papa Bear.

My EM-11 Temma 2 Jr. and my new EM-200 USD-3 alongside a wayward, adopted cousin, my Discmounts DM-6.

I was going to sell the EM-11 but can't bear :crazy: to part with it. It's such a sweet mount.

The EM-200 hasn't seen dark skies yet (here) but it sure looks, runs and feels like a fantastic partner for my NP127.

Thought you'd like the family photo.

NICE looking mounts!

But ... uh ... er ... do you use them with or without tripods?

Nice pic! That Em-11 would sure look good in my back yard with my Stellarvue 105 on it.

or my FSQ106ED ;)

I just setup my FSQ on a used CG5/ASGT, and lets just say there's a socio-economic and visual fugue going on! :lol:

Nice mounts!

You've heard of tandem scopes? Well, I do tandem mounts! Flip the scope back and forth to see if the view improves. :rainbow:
