Quote:I love posts like this - plus it just makes me long more and more for a fixed observatory. But Brent - lets see some photos of that CGE as well, huh....?

Quote:LOL,thanks guys!!!Mark,I am actually going to let this cure fo another couple of days...I would have set it up later this afternoon(24 hours is plenty of time to "dry fit" the CGE,no scopes or weights,just the mount...)BUT,it has been raining all morning and that will easily add a lot more time to the curing process..
None of my kit is part of a two year pay to be part of beta test, that still isn't close to ending.
