Whenever I have come into large sums of money in my life, I always put half of it aside to spend on fast cars and the pursuit of loose women.
I put aside the other half to spend frivolously.
Quote:Be aware of this. When used very close to the equator, it is possible that the counterweights will not clear the tripod. You may have to relocate the azimuth lug on the tripod mounting base so that the lug is between two legs (normally they are set up with the lug over the "North" leg). I don't know if this is the case with newer CG5s, but it was the case with older ones when used with heavier scopes.
