Ya, but that observing location looks pretty....well great, actually!

 

I'm beyond jealous, Sir.

It's most certainly a great location. The light dome from metro Phoenix is an issue to the east, but it's remote and dark and a bit special to my girlfriend and I. I feel very fortunate to live in an area where places like this are easily available.

Here is my C90 riding on my Parallax Instruments HD200C. While the scope is a tad over mounted, it is extremely stable -- even in high winds!

First light for my new Edge 8" on AVX mount the other night. GPS and StarSense. Worked perfect!

No, I have also mounted a guidescope and NexGuide autoguider.

Installed a Kokusai Kohki guide handle on the C-6... Nice improvement for effortless panning.

Just installed a new Feathertouch Crayford on the C9.25" Edge. Tonight will be the third night out with it and I'm in love...

Observing at the pool must be nice! I need boots, wintercap and warm clothes during the whole season.

I already have a C14 and C11 (NS11GPS), but decided to try a used 8" EdgeHD with the active cooling (Tempest fans already installed) for the colder months.

Also interested in seeing if I see much of a difference from the Standard version (FC not usually an issue for me).

The parcel arrived safely after a long trek from CA.

Unpackaged with OEM accessories (plus power supply for fans and second Dovetail) as well as "Corrector" shot.

As soon as I made the purchase for the EdgeHD along came a heated Dew Shield (classifieds).  Fits perfect, but I'll have to remove the second dovetail Bar (black) as the DS only has one cut out and won't seat far enough to properly position the Dew Heater. I also found an old Baader SCT - 2" Compression VB which fits nicely.

Just picked up one of those closeout 6" Meade LX80 OTAs. Very nice little CAT. Here it is on my Celestron NexStar SE mount...

An Axiom as a scope counterweight?
