This is my CGEM925! With my new 14ES100! I'm very proud of it. I'm only sixteen so it was a very big deal for me. Lots of hours of hard work!

CPC1100 set up the way I'm usually using it, with the Bino's in, controlled with my iPad and SkySafari/Skywire setup.

The golf cart you see in the background of the first pic is how I carry everything out to the spot in 1 trip; it also makes trips to the garage for fresh beverages from the fridge much better.

I've got 270 degrees of near perfect viewing from that spot. The reason I set up there is for the horizon views, and its the only spot where the yard light won't crush my dark adaption. I'm still working on getting the folks to tell the electric coop to remove the yard light since the coop won't allow a switch to turn it off.

Hi , just saw this thread so I thought I would kill two birds with one stone and say hi to you all , and show off my gear as well so ............

Hello to one and all , I am brand new to this fantasic hobbie , and im well and truly hooked , just picked up a secondhand telescope yesterday andlike so many waiting for some clear skys so I can try it out , its my first telescope , but to be honest my freind was selling it at what I thought was a very good price , so I jumped at it . Its a Celestron Nexstar 11 gps I paid £500 forthe lot , ie scope , eyepeices, focal reducer ect ect , for me as a newbie to this fine sport I thought being as its fully ccomputerized its got to be a big plus for me .

Anyway glad to meet you all

Best regards steve

Welcome -- and that's a very good deal for a fine scope. If you run into any issues of questions, be sure to post here as there are a lot of people who have owned of still own the same equipment.
