Mike B,

Thank you for the post. I think this is going to the highly desirable part of future purchases for the Dob!

Save for the 14g if you can. It's a big scope but at this price and tracking well worth it. The g is more work to set up but worth the work. I like the process, it's part of the whole experience to me. For lazy or last minute nights I have my super modified 10" for grab and go.

Having Saturn in the ep with the 5mm Pentax XW crisp as can be, and it staying in there while I just enjoyed and mused on what I was seeing - that to me is 'what it's all about'. Also nice not to have to keep adjusting between different folks viewing it. I know it's not everyone's fun, but for me that made this worth the wait and the 'ante up'.
