Well, since everybody is posting a picture of his mount, here's my Celestron Cgem Go-To with ADM upgrade. The scope is a Williams Optics FLT 132mm with a very nice FeatherTouch focuser.

Mike,
I love the look of those Vixens. Very classy.



Matt,
The new white T-Rex is a real beauty.


Best, Linda B.

I was wondering if it was awkward viewing with an upside down telescope, but I see the diagonal is pointed downwards. Can you sit in a chair, or use a ladder?

It's oriented more sideways, but it's totally fine, and the focus knob is easily at hand below the diagonal. The telrad is the only finder I really use so the Celestron one isn't important. I've always been a starhopper, no find/track drives necessary.

This image is in the refractor section already, but what the heck it should be here as well.

Here's the newest, a AZ-EQ6 GT, setup in Alt-Az mode, sporting my 10" Newtonian in my home, hours before it's first outing.
