Hello everybody!

Thanks for all the comments.
Thanks Mike for the translation link, its better than my english.

I built the mount by myself, it weighs 140kg+.
The equipment weighs at the moment about 75-80kg.

Have a nice day!

Here is my new baby. Of course there is nothing but clouds for the foreseeable future.

Good thing it's great to look at, since I can't look through it.

Solar viewing with my Brass 5" f/14 Refractor Perkin-Elmer lens operating at > f/30 with a DayStar H-A. This was the first time I used this scope for this use and was rewarded with the most detailed solar viewing experience for me yet. The native f/14 lens makes this scope an ideal match for use with DayStar filters.
