I used the scope stuff rings. I know there are better ones out there but for me the scope stuff works great.

I change gear (and sig lines) frequently. That post and photo are from over a year ago; there have been other LX200 Meades in there since then. Cloudy Nights regenerates the sig line each time a post is retrieved so even very old posts are viewed with a current sig line.

The current mount uses basically the same controller and electronics as an early LX200, and one of the optical tubes is sold as an LX200 - it nearly qualifies for this thread!

Nice-looking setup.

I didn't think of posting an LX200 OTA shot - here's a 7" LX200 Mak!

Setup from another angle. Van Slyke slider, JMI motofocus...considering a derotator but have read a lot of contradictory opinions.

Oh that's just freakin' cruel and unusual punishment!



I'm trying to find a negative thing about living there but besides the time it must take for mail order deliveries to get there I just can't think of anything. Awesome.

I thought I recognized that view! That’s Charlotte Amalie from one of the scenic overlooks. It's either from on the road leading to Mountain Top or the Paradise Point tramway. Which is it?

I had the enormous pleasure to work in the Virgin Islands for a project that lasted a little over 2 years. This was one of the best contracts and was a crowning achievement in my career. It was an IT related project and man did I love living there. I rented a house in a beautiful section called Water Point. I bought my first Meade scope while living and working there and had it shipped from Pocono Optics. I totally loved the wonderful dark skies they are blessed with in the territories. I used to say that “they were the skies of my childhood” they were just that beautiful. And with the island of St John in my back yard framing the scene, it was a sight to behold. Have you seen any fireball meteors yet? They are quite frequent and spectacular along with the triple rainbows. Hopefully you are staying “out in the country” as they call it.

I miss that place it’s in my blood and I have many dear friends still there. I must get back.

Don
