Now is there another listing that has that or do I only have to use a computer or smartphone (android)?? would Google SkyMaps show me the AA settings?




You do need some sort of computer or smartphone to give you current Alt/Az coordinates, because unlike RA/Dec, Alt/Az coordinates are not constant (they change with time and location).

since the price of the Halo would be almost as much as I paid for the used DSH-8.




Yeah it's tough for a brand new micro-niche product that's made in America to compete with the price of a used Dob that was mass produced in Taiwan 8-12 years ago.

the entire Halo looks like a nice idea.






Thanks Rob!
