Actually this is not a good scope at all. Please send it to my street, my city, my postal code :p

:funny:

Just kidding; you have an awesome setup for both visual and photography. You'll love the precision of the Moonlite focuser.

Have fun,

Guylain

Nice! Once you get the hang of long FL imaging, the Edges are hard to beat.

Nice! Looks like you have rails top and bottom. What have you tucked up your sleeve?

I'm assuming you have rails on top and bottom so you can piggyback another telescope or two. If I was a betting man, your Ha scope would ride on top and you'll get a White Light filter for the bottom....

You are right! I'll mount the autoguider scope on top and my any telescope on.

The Ha telescope it's WAY to heavy for it... The Lunt 100 and the 9.25 are almost the same weight... Soo it's too much for my mount.
