There may be 17.5" , 20" , or even 25" Dobs at observing sites but when you set this classic Newtonian with German Equatorial, people come to you. I've taken it to Mt Pinos, Joshua Tree, The Providence Mtns, Saddleback, Lockwood Valley, Idyllwild, Palomar, Corral Canyon in Santa Monicas, Apple Valley, Dale Dry Lake, Tehachapi Conference, Glendora Ridge Road.

Deep Sky Objects & events observed with this scope that are noteworthy for me: I.C. 1296 galaxy next to M57, Abel 12, Leo I galaxy, Comet Shoemaker's aftermath on Jupiter, arms on NGC 1365 barred spiral gx, arms on NGC 3184, 5248, 5383, M99, M100, 4535, 925 gx, dust lane on NGC 7814 gx, and Saturn occulting 8.4mg star on Nov 14, 2003, where the star 'twinkled' off and on as the ring particles occulted the star, several globular clusters belonging to M31 & many more.

Caveat: 2 man set up and requires a long SUV , pickup truck, or trailer.

Any questions welcomed and honestly answered.
