Here is my AP1200, made in 2007, which never saw first light until I acquired it this year. It's ready for action now, drift aligned with a carefully balanced load (a TEC 140 and a C11 Edge HD). This is my retirement entertainment plan

Clear Skies,
Brian

OMG, that is beautiful!
What scope is that?


Sorry I'm late on replying. The scope is a 4" f12 Edmonds optics. The tube is cut to length at home and I machined the baffles and focuser myself. The dew shield was some flat stock brass I formed and braised to a 6" tube. The eyepieces are Edmond RKE bought in the 70s whe I started the build.

Well, that was a reply on the mount from rogue river art !
I have myself a NEQ5 Pro SynScan GoTo. Great mount but not worth a picture.

I just received this DM-6 which is shown with Esprit 150ED.
The mount looks small compared to the scope but the setup is rock solid!

My new Desert Sky Optical DSV-M on a Berlebach Report tripod. Paired with my Televue 76 scope it makes a great grab-and-go / travel setup. I can haul everything including chair and books in one trip, and this is also airline portable.
