Thanks Scott! I agree, though the surveyor tripod could use a fresh coat of paint. :grin:

Kson 1026ED, Carbon fiber on Nexstar SE mount.
'Scope only weighs 5.6lbs and will reach zenith.
The little pack held to the mount, with a rubber band, contains 10 x 1.2V rechargeables which will last for more than 4 hours.
The whole lot can be carried out in one trip.

I have been lurking for a while and thought this would be a nice way to introduce myself. I use my refactors mainly for H-Alpha viewing and grab and go. I also own a 12.5" and 8" Portaball for deep sky observing sessions.
