Quote:Just need some opinions of CGEM users in the 60+ age. Do you find the mount set up and weight manageable for somone in my early 60's age group. How long is set up time? I'm thinking of purchasing one for 9.25 OTA
Quote:and using a piece of HDPE between the mount and the tripod hub to allow smooth azimuth adjustments.
Quote:...or, you could just take an empty 1 gallon plastic milk jug, cut a flat side off and trim it to the size you need to make the donut for the top of the tripod. It functions very well as a slipsheet, costs you nothing, and you recycled!
