Is it possible to put wheels on your C14 and keep it on the tripod and roll it out when needed? This would work if you observe from home. For dark sites you can always take the smaller scope.
Non Edge C11 vs. Meade 12 f/10 ACF

Bmark, I do a lot of deep sky observing focusing on galaxies and galaxy groups, so every inch of aperture helps. Plus I really like the build quality of the older glossy blue Meade scopes better and the ACF optics.

Jon doh, I don't have the ability to mount the C14 on a mount with a wheeled dolly. So now I have a nice glossy blue M12 ACF, but haven't sold the C14 yet. Seems without the Fastar secondary, it is harder to sell.
