Quote:However, I don't care for it when viewing through our 152mm mak/newt mounted on the Twilight II mount. It gets in the way and has to be moved around too much. With that scope I use an inexpensive wooden stool we purchased from Ikea a decade or so ago. The big advantage is it doesn't have a back to it. I can squirm around on it easily to adjust the scope, hunch forward or lean backwards or grab something off the observing table without getting up.

I have this chair. It's easy to adjust to different heights. The sit holds it position very well and it's lite/easy to move.
I have really enjoyed this chair and would buy another in a heart beat
