I think if I had that scope I would have to hire a maid to keep it clean and that would be her only job. Thanks

I can't wait to get it out. Missing a power cord, but I'll try it out manually.

Here is another Image of my Nexstar 8 Se on a shelf in my OBS along with my CR150 6 HD . I mounted them on the shelves to save floor space. I will be swapping them out with the 10" LX200 Classic that will be on the permanent pier most of the time.

But great looking scopes.

I see a screw holding the refractor and mount on the shelf.
I would hope there is one for the cat also.

Here's mine, down on VA's Northern Neck, after a night of observing under "dark skies":

1976 C8 Orange Tube (ETX90EC is out of the picture to the right).

Enjoy! John

Here is my old C9.25.
Good optics, but took half the night to cool down.
It's the last time I'll ever buy a carbon fiber scope....
