Quote:@rigel123 - Your advice is exactly the way I'm leaning. At the top of my wish list is the A-P Mach1GTO and their Eagle portable pier. I'm sure my daughter won't mind if I "borrow" her scope from time to time. BTW, I looked at your astrophotos at the link in your sig: they are *spectacular*! Definitely something for me to aspire to emulate!-- Chris

Quote:@edwincjones - That's my plan exactly. I'd love to get a TV NP101, but after the expense of the mount, I think it's out of reach for now. As suggested above, I'm going to spend my time learning the mount and practicing with my daughter's OTA (the 80mm scope in my sig).-- Chris
