Just wanted to share that with all of you, I'm so happy
Hopefully it will be here in approximately 6 weeks.
Then I'll post some photos and impressions.

I am so envious. That's first on my list when I win the lottery.
Can't wait to see your report when you get it.

And to avoid me backing from buying it (it is a big investment for me), I bought first an accessory: an inflatable pillow to compensate for eye distance when fully reclined and my head weight will sunk into the upholstery
I ordered the Penny and Giles joystick too along with the 150mm Fujinon Kit... ohhh, I can't wait!

Can't wait for the pictures.
What is the price tag?

I'm sure it will boost the time and joy of using my binos. I found that because of the uncomfortability of observing too high, staring at an object for more than two minutes was rare.

and a little bit of envy
who am I kidding,
a whole lot of envy

I would like to invite you for a tour of the US,
with the ED 40x150s and Starchair3000, of course

The most important issue the chair will cover is the comfortability; I'm only 35, but my back and neck suffer easily like in a much older person.
The most impressive views I had are from the 40x150's, but the most comfortable experience is always with the 10x42 lying on a mattress on the floor, of course only at or very near the zenith, I'm just trying to get the best of both experiences
"Looks great. You place the bar on which the vertical support rests over your legs once seated?"
Yes, but that's optional and will give extra support and rigidness in the case of strong winds that may make the image to shake. In normal situations it wont be necessary.

I could spend the whole night in that chair. If I bought one, and my wife found out how much it cost, that's likely where I'd be sleeping from now on.
