16 ready To carry
I wanted a small table to raise the dob up but I needed something that was portable. I found a large collapsible box at Walmart. It'll serve two purposes. It's big enough to fit the base inside. So I put the base, a small eyepiece case and my pocket sky atlas in the box. So now, when carrying the assembled scope to my observing point, I have the box in one hand and the OTA in the other.
