Here is a picture on me about 45 years (and pounds) ago with my Sears 60mm EQ with electric drive motor. Sorry to say I no longer have this scope but it was good enough to keep me interested. I watched comet Bennett in 1970 with it.

The Cave 12.5" f/7 Model D Transportable Observatory relegated to the back of the garage to make room for a couch my daughter "handed up" to us. It needed to go in the other garage until I build a place to put it at Cosmic Acres

You need to back that camera off a bit. Using my 20" monitor you made me spill my coffee...
