Quote:I'm in the design phase for a roll-off roof observatory to be located near Pikes Peak. I would like to permanently mount this scope/mount combo as the main instrument.I'd be interested in any advice on designing the pier based on your club's experience. I looked through the Celestron site for documentation that would allow me to design the pier prior to obtaining the scope, but did not see enough to go on. For example, the height of the pier so the roof clears the parked scope is important as is the mount to pier details.Any information would be much appreciate.
Quote:I'm thinking of purchasing a Celestron CGE Pro 1400HD to replace my aging Meade 8" LX200. Does anyone have this scope setup? If so, what do you like about it and what do you dislike?
