That looks great, congratulation! You're going to have a blast with it.
Would you take a moment though and please reduce the size of the image, it's way too big for the frame and blows everything away. Thanks. Contact one of the forum moderators if you need advice on how to do that.

As far as reducing the size those of online photos, I found a free downloadable program called Irfanview that can be found Here

What lead you to need the counterweight mod with a 90mm Orion anyway? Are you having trouble with the altitude bearing? I use that mount with an f/10 refractor about a meter long without a counterweight, but do you have beter performance with a short tube and the CW?
PS - Thanks John.
PPS - That's a sweet lunar set-up. I hope you'll visit us in the lunar forum if you get interested in the moon!
