I also have a few older 60mm refractors that don't see any time under the stars.

My classic Eikow 77mm f/15.6 mounted on a Vixen GP mount. This scope can do 60x per inch no problem.

I just bought this Sky Watcher 6 inch F/5 scope two days ago and put it on my CG-5 Mount. SO far I love it.

I hope this isn't offensive, but at first glance, until I saw the focuser on the end, I thought I was looking at a big mag flashlight.

Thanks Scott! I agree, though the surveyor tripod could use a fresh coat of paint.

Kson 1026ED, Carbon fiber on Nexstar SE mount.
'Scope only weighs 5.6lbs and will reach zenith.
The little pack held to the mount, with a rubber band, contains 10 x 1.2V rechargeables which will last for more than 4 hours.
The whole lot can be carried out in one trip.
