Does Anyone Else Want to Rent a Vixen Polarie?
      #5743764 - 03/19/13 07:05 PM

I would love to try out a Vixen Polarie or similar tracking mount for widefield astrophotography. But I can't afford one now. There is a company called "Borrow Lenses" that rents out camera gear including tripods and other support equipment. So I sent them an email about possibly renting out the Polarie. I got a reply saying that sounds like a good idea and would be forwarded to the purchasing department. But that was back in December, and it's still not available for rent.
Maybe if more people show some interest, they will start renting it out soon. So if anyone else would like to rent a portable tracking mount, can you send them an email? Borrow Lenses
I know a lot of people like myself can't get out to dark skies often. So it seems like renting a tracking mount for when you do find yourself under dark skies might be a more economical solution.
