I just realized that I never posted pics on this thread of my EON 120 after I bought it at the end of last year. I've added an ADM saddle since the pic was taken.

Here it is on the CG-5 ASGT mount



And a pic of the business end.

Those are some nice looking Orions, Jim and Illinois

I have a lonely LXD75 now... I'm seriously considering saving up for a larger Refractor in the 5"-6" range. But there's no way I can afford an Apo. So maybe an Achro from Celestron or like the ES AR127 or AR152.

Here is what good-'ol Blue is supposed to look like! I think these do a little justice to the wonderful aesthetics of the scope.

And there's Bruno the Corgi wondering if this is something he should be playing with...

Zvaragabor and AlexxxAA.....Thanks! I put my Orion 100mmED F9 outside and back to watch tv for half hour. My telescope get cooling and ready when I came back. I have 16 inch and 180mm Mak-Cass but I use my 100mmED a lot than 2 other telescope.

I keep eye to see if Orion sell new telescopes at least 130mm ED OTA then I might buy it! NO mount....I have too many mount!
