Quote:It is a mobile observatory, so, no I can not attached anything to the scope base.
Quote: an adjustable height office chair on a rolling base might do he same thing and be much more comfortable.

Quote:I actually thought of and tried Idea#2 and it was problematic. The castors on the chair are just no smooth enough, plus they bind and lock.
Idea#1 looks more promising, but, dangerous if not in a locked position when not in use. You can imagine stepping on it and having it move under your feet.
I do not mind spending money on it, but, it has to be a stable reliable solution.
