Quote:I haven't tried the SS2K. But when I had the Sphinx SXD I really loved its StarBook
Quote:I bet you didnt love the fact that it didnt save its alignment or pec settings between sessions
Quote:Quote:I bet you didnt love the fact that it didnt save its alignment or pec settings between sessions To be honest I don't really care about these as I observe in different site each time....I like Starbook because of its star map built in the screen.
Quote:Oh...thanks guys! I guess the GP-DX is irreplaceable then, eh? I have been trying to find one for a while now, but without luck.
Quote:Only one I am aware of for sale right now is listed both here and on Amart for $1200 without a tripod (the amart ad does say he will throw in an Ioptron tripod) but even though it is listed as mint condition thats a couple hundred to the high side imo.....at least based on past listing prices and the fact it has been listed for a month or so without moving.
Quote:right, and a CGEM or Atlas can be found for $900! That's absurd actually.
Quote:Quote:right, and a CGEM or Atlas can be found for $900! That's absurd actually. He'll figure it out when it doesn't sell for months.Or he'll find some unfortunate sucker to actually pay that, one way or another...
Quote:Wow, quite the response...The one for $1200 includes ONLY the EQ head and computer, no tripod, no case, no accessories, nothing.Not sure if I would call someone who purchases it at that price lucky.They average with a tripod a few worthwhile accessories for 2009 at the $1100-$1300 price point, sometimes for a lucky buyer they have gone a touch under $1000.
Quote:John, me neither: but I was just commenting on the fact that those two mounts are way bigger with higher payload capacity than the GP-DX!
