Some pictures not just of the scope itself, but also of Jupiter through the scope would be good. This is the perfect time to be imaging Jupiter...

Wow. I started a 5" f/20 Tri-Schief some years ago, and may pick it up again. The long R3 flummoxed me, but I may be more skillful now...

Greg;

I have had the pleasure of using several 5 and 6 inch TCT's at Riverside over the years, as you said they are excellent for Moon and planets. I have met Dick Buchroeder several times over the years and he certainly speaks that these scopes are the best way to see the solar system.

Clear skies;
