Ahhhh yes, the LV223 "Space Jockey" model...one of my favorites! Truly, a planet killer.

Yeah and it looks like ridding himself of the central obstruction was a rather painful process.

Here join a « picture » of mine. Because my refractor is sketch orientate, for my first post I send you a rapid watercolour.

Click on it for a larger view. (forgive the link to my photography website, I swear it's not a plug - it just happens to already be uploaded there in full-res).

The Celestron CG-4 mount is more than capable of handling my Takahashi FS-102, four-inch f/8 apochromat. With the addition of the sixteen-inch pier, the union is made all the more stable, so much so that I consider the pier almost indispensable in this particular configuration. The gyroscopic motions about the axes are nothing short of fluid and graceful, once balanced, and with vibrations barely discernible; in fact, an experience virtually indistinguishable from when the refractor was once matched to a Vixen Polaris GP-DX years ago.

I gambled, and won, in this, a happy union...
