My first telescope and I'm proud to show it off. To start, space is limited, as I live in my rv. So I went with this and have a nice small case to store everything in. I ditched the stock visual back and went with a Baader ClickLock and adapter. I'm already eyeing a Baader diagonal with another ClickLock for the eyepieces. Perhaps overkill but I'm not a fan of the tiny screws holding things in. I added the wifi module and love it so far. I have a spare iPhone and plan to use it just for the scope. The stock red dot seems extremely cheap, yet it works. I can get skyalign working just fine with it. I'm looking to replace it with a Telrad though. I considered StarSense but wanted to do it manually to begin with and honestly, I'm fine with manual. I tried to find the JMI hand control side bracket, but it seems to be sold out everywhere. So I re-purposed an old magnetic phone mount from my truck. It gave me the angle I wanted for the hand control. When the HC is on the magnet, I hang the battery from the HC slot with two command hooks. A right angle power cable keeps things out of the way. Lastly, I'm eyeing dew shields. I got the Celestron branded one, but am looking at Astrozap with a heater. I figure get one now to deal with weather conditions wherever I may go.
