Quote:Rob offer him 350 like we said in the other thread and then you can spend the other 50 on a cheapo jumpstart pack. if you have a harbor freight tools in your area these work greathttp://www.harborfreight.com/12-volt-jump-start-and-power-supply-38391.htmlsometimes they go on sale for as cheap as 30 dollars too!

Quote:its got a normal 12v cig lighter plug for output. most electronic scopes should come with a long cig lighter cord for plugging them into a car, if not one is easily made for cheap.
Quote:I think for $400, you cannot go wrong on this scope.It appears everything is there so I would jump on it. This would make a great grab and go and GOTO to boot? I have a 8se nexstar and love it. You may find out, once you have it, you may not want to let it go because of its convenience. I do short exposure imaging with mine.
Quote:Sorny thanks for the info. Yeah the power tank will be another investment down the road if I do get this scope. I know dark skies, good seeing and trans. are ideal but how does this scope fair on DSO's in say orange zones!
Quote:OK silly question time. This is a 5" scope, but what are the actual dimensions as far as diameter and length ?? Just trying to visualize how big the scope is.

Quote:I love my 5SE for showing people the Moon and planets. It is very portable and perfect for outreach events. I also use it to quickly determine if the seeing is good enough for me to haul out and set up my bigger scope.Here is an image I took with my 5SE using the NexImage 5 webcam.
