Great job. Enjoyed your report. At times, felt like I was reading about the latest NASA space probe....lot of wires, gadgets, switches. Blast off. Man have things changed since the days of my first Coulter!!

I have a kaizen scope also and enjoyed doing such. I think it is moving me toward becoming a proper ATM. It was nice to read your article.

from a base scope to a fully pimped out ride, (love your terms). Very well done article and very nice telescope, hope to see it at Okie-Tex this year?

Wow, nice read and nice "bling" add-on to your Obsession! It was enjoyable to read along as if following a time-line through history as your scope developed. The culture here in the USA is more and now! My wife laughs at how spoiled I have become since our 1st scope (an 80mm refractor). We have plans of purchasing a large Dob within the next 12 months and I have fears of how IT will evolve. Thank you for giving me a general idea now. I wish you many dark Colorado nights!
