I am considering adding casters to my Questar Tristand and would like those who have Tristands with casters if there are any disadvantages other than the obvious added expense.

Thanks in advance,
LarryV

I have the casters....it adds height to the TriStand and wonder if by rolling it around with the Q3.5 on it could it knock it out of collimation although that probably is not likely to happen as in a Schmidt Cassegrain.
