Quote:After my first light, I decided that my next piece of equipment is a very solid yet comfortable chair. I like the Stardust but at the same time I like something I can swivel on while looking at my laptop where I am running Stellarium. So, I found 2 chairs I like.. The Tele Vue Air Chair (Kind of pricey) Tele Vue Air-Chair or this drummer's throne Gibratar Hydraulic Moto Throne Gibraltar Hydraulic Moto Throne . The specs are almost a like in adjustment height.

Quote:Hi Ben:For the Nexstar 8SE you need about 8-10" of adjustment height. Here's the stool I use that has 10" of adjustment and at $60 is MUCH less expensive than the ones you linked:http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/253081-REG/Impact_RST001_Posing_Stool_2...It's comfortable, sturdy, and very easy/quick to adjust.-Dan

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe

Quote:Do you have to extend the legs out all the way on the mount for an 8SE? If not, I was playing around and adjusted the legs down to where I can use an old task chair I have with no back. The task chair is adjustable and very comfortable.
Quote:Most office type chairs and stools only adjust up/down about 3 to 4 inches. Not enough range for viewing comfort. To try a chair out, see if you can get a comfortable view when the scope is aimed near the horizon and near zenith without changing he tripod height. -Dan
