Quote:Brian:The observing was wonderful on Saturday night! The dew as horrible, though! The Mini did very well with the 150mm MAK. It was up and running in 10 minutes. After the two star alignment everything was within the FOV. I worked it very hard with no issues.I thought I already posted these results? Aaaaaaah! What do I know? Maybe it was a dream.Steve
Quote: I'm hoping to use my 8" SCT and my 110mm Megrez on it (not at the same time though). How do you think it'll fair with those scopes? Do you really think the 25lb rating is accurate?
