My latest scope juggle resulted in this pretty slick portable setup.
I got the EM11 new in the box off the other site and the scope is pristine.
The finder is a bit overkill, but an astro bud(I should stop calling him a bud, he cost me lots of $$ :) ) had it new and sold it to me for the smae price as a 7x50. I plan to machine a 1 1/4 adapter to use it for guiding.

Now I just need the rain to go away!

I had to machine up the adapter for the finder.

Nice work! :waytogo:

I still have my Atlas to A-P Pier adapter even though I'll never give up my Mach1 and go back to an Atlas. There are some things I just don't let go. :)

Cheers,

Ron
