Got tired of fumbling around in the dark for pencils, flashlights, notecards that I use for sketching/notes, etc. so I rigged this up. The containers are actually from a toolboox, but there are tons of options for that, I might find some deeper ones at some point. Attached using velcro so they can easily be attached/removed. The velro I used is pretty sturdy so these will support quite a bit of weight. They don't interfere with the movement of the scope at all in this location. No more finding pencils and stuff in the grass the next day!

Excellent work! They look really handy.
And, what a great-looking telescope.

Thanks! Jealous of that 14 though :)

I know I flipped the pictures right side up before I uploaded them, not sure what happened.
