I have taken that unexpected trip to the ground one time too many ... the last time was 203 years ago and the next morning I was down at Hands On Optics writing a check for a Stardust chair...
I've used other chairs but this thing is absolutely the most satble AND comfortable chair I have ever used..
The Major side effect was that my "seeing" improved significantly using this chair..no more using the brain to keep track of your seating
position or worrying about "that trip" ..
This is NOT saying that it is the Best chair all I can say is I am no longer even glance at ads for other chairs...
I LOVE IT !

That chair is beautiful.
Everything, including the spindles were handcrafted! Everything fits so perfectly, it is indeed a work of art!
It is extremely stable, so comfortable one could fall asleep Needless to say, I love it!

I have been happy with this chair. It was $10 or $15 cheaper when I bought it.
I second the above recommendation. This is the exact chair I got from the same vendor a while ago. I do not know if this is the best chair for astronomy but I have been pleased with it thus far.

With your permission, would you mind if I build a chair very similar to yours? I've looked at several wooden ones and I like yours. Having asked - how long is the upright piece that the seat and foot rest are on? I can work out all the rest of the diminsions from there.

I have never had mine slip while I was sitting on it, and I use it every night.

OTOH, I must admit that Carol's chair is beautiful.

starbound seems to be a nice item.
I like mine. The ability to instantly change seat heights with one hand behind my back was a selling point for me.
No problem with slippage, though a minimal amount of care should be taken that the seat is in it's normal resting position before sitting down. This quickly becomes intuitive.

like a lounge chair with a built in beverage holder.
I make them in Maple.

The best chair is the one with the biggest, cushiest seat that you're willing to carry around.
No...no, that's for scopes too.
Well, anyway MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Just save yourself around $50 and get the "ergonomic workers seat" from Ted Thorsen (just add an "astro" prefix to anything, and the price goes up 40% straight away!)

Stardust Observers chair. Stable, comfortable, easy to adjust and NO danger of dropping me in the dirt in the dark.
I'll second that!
